iOS Universal Education
Proloquo2Go is an award-winning symbol-supported communication app. It provides a voice to over 150,000 individuals who cannot speak. The app is designed to promote language development and grow communication skills. Its innovative features support users, parents, teachers and therapists to quickly personalize the vocabulary and settings.
“Users can open Proloquo2Go and begin to use it for effective communication immediately” – Susan Berkowitz, MS-SLP, AAC Consultant.
Proloquo2Go is used by people with autism, down syndrome, cerebral palsy and other diagnoses. It is available in English, Spanish and French, including regional and bilingual support. The app can be used on iPad, iPhone, iPod touch and Apple Watch.
Did you know that 200 to 400 words account for 80% of what we say? And that most of these core words are not nouns but verbs, pronouns, prepositions, etc.? Proloquo2Go’s research-based Crescendo™ vocabulary puts core words front and center for easy access. Core words combined with AAC (Augmentative and Alternative Communication) best practices can greatly improve the user’s language development and communication skills. And this is not only for trained therapists; parents, siblings, teachers, friends and peers can and should participate too! Find out more at bit.ly/core-words.
Growth of communication skills
Proloquo2Go is one of the few AAC apps that covers all users, from beginning to advanced communicators. Its research-based Crescendo™ vocabulary offers three levels: Basic Communication, Intermediate Core and Advanced Core. It's easy to switch levels within the same vocabulary while retaining your customizations. To make sure users reach their full potential, we recommend using a large grid size. With Progressive Language you can hide buttons showing only the most important ones, and reveal vocabulary in a developmental sequence as communication skills grow.
To support language development, we have created templates to keep core words on a consistent place throughout the vocabulary. This takes advantage of one of the ways we learn how to do things - motor planning. We have used these templates for the folders we created, but you can also use them to create folders yourself. In addition, Proloquo2Go offers full grammar support that is customizable to the user’s level.
We have pre-programmed Proloquo2Go with over 10,000 words, so you only need to do some fine-tuning to personalize the vocabulary. To add your own buttons you have access to more than 20,000 SymbolStix symbols or you can use your own photos. Quickly create new pages with our (activity) templates. Use the many accessibility settings like scanning for users with fine-motor challenges or Apple’s VoiceOver for users with vision impairments. Buttons, pages, navigation and access - it can all be customized with just a few taps.

This update fixes a bug some users were experiencing after updating to iOS 11. If you have this version, now when you’re typing, you can easily choose the word you were looking for. A few users also reported seeing buttons they’d previously hidden while searching – this is now fixed.

• Optimized for the new iOS 11
• Improved vision accessibility: adjust your preferred text size in Settings app and see your choice reflected in Proloquo2Go options and edit mode
