My First AAC

App Name/Publisher: My First AAC/Project Injini

Anna from Project Injini has generously offered three promo codes to our readers- a TherapyApp411 first!  If you'd like to try for one, email blog@injini.net with the subject line "TherapyApp411 promo code offer." Thanks, Anna! [EDIT: Sorry! Codes all Gone!]

Description: My First AAC is an augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) app designed for the iPad. It contains a total of 21 pre-programmed pages containing up to 8 symbols per page. Pages can be accessed through a “home” page, and symbols can be customized using photos from your photo library. There is also an extra (blank) page that can also be customized.

Therapy Use: Students can use this app to communicate during numerous structured activities, as well as to request basic wants and needs. It contains ample symbols that can be used to build a functional vocabulary for young students. Some of the pages that could be used during structured therapy activities include:
-In social skills groups; use of the greetings, personal, and social pages.
-Use of the feelings page to target emotions vocabulary.
-Use of the questions page to target asking simple questions.
-Use of shapes, colors, and numbers pages to support early academics.
-Use of the positions page to work on learning early prepositions/location words including up, down, in, out, around, under, next to, and here.
-With the recent update, users can now customize symbols using images from their photo library. This provides the ability to make a customized page for use with any therapy activity. -

A Video Demo for My First AAC can be viewed here

App Benefits/Likes: This app is very kid-friendly, with highly iconic picture symbols and a realistic sounding voice for either a young boy or girl. Vocabulary is appropriate for young children and for children who are working on building a basic core vocabulary (and then some). Pages and symbols can be customized by creating icons using images from the photo library and recording a voice to label the icon (click here for a video demo). There is a home page from which all the pages can be accessed. This app is also very affordable!

Cautions: For the price of $24.99, there are not very many cautions! There is a limit of blank customizable pages (1 extra page), but users could completely change the pre-programmed pages if needed. The app is designed for young children, and the icons do suit the targeted age group. To use with much older students, a lot of customizing may need to be done.


App Summary

Skills targeted: Requesting, commenting/labeling, using and understanding basic/functional vocabulary, asking and answering questions

Age/grade level targeted: Toddlers and preschoolers, but may also be appropriate for some elementary school children.

How to activate:
Scroll through pages
Isolated finger point to select symbols

Type of device: iPad

Cost: $24.99

Would you recommend this app? Yes, I would definitely recommend it for new AAC users.
