Does your child have Autism Spectrum Disorder or Special Needs with speaking difficulties? TippyTalk is for you! It is an app to help your child communicate.
On an iPad, your child (the "TippyTalker") creates a simple sentence by selecting illustrations. These pictures become a written message!
The TippyTalker can have the message read aloud to someone in the room OR sent to a member of the TippyTalker's private community, such as YOU! Then you can respond from your smartphone with written text, video, or audio.
Your child needs: an iPad and Internet access.
You need: a smartphone, iPad, or tablet with Internet access.
Questions? We can help!
Your child uses picture and symbols to create messages on an iPad to send or be read aloud to someone in the room.
You receive and respond to messages on your smartphone. Respond with video, pictures, audio or written text to be read aloud.
On your own device, create your TippyTalker's community and customize your TippyTalker's "cards" using the included SymbolStix image Library and/or personal images.
This Florida program helps children with disabilities acquire specialized equipment they need in order to use basic communication services.
Note: program qualifications may change.
Your message may be spoken aloud to someone in the room OR sent to one of your Community Members. For this example, we've selected "Dad."
To send Dad a message, choose a sentence starter card from the provided photos and illustrations.
Select the rest of your message. Listen to the message, if you wish, and send it to Dad. He'll receive the message and send a response.
