  • Great introductory communication device!

    by Bnberno

    It was easy to use and navigate, came with plenty of pre-loaded pictures, and was easy to upload your own. The pictures were of real items with uncluttered backgrounds which helps with comprehension. The speech was clear. It would be good for those who are non-verbal or just learning to request items. I would recommend this app for anyone looking for an introductory communication device for their child.

  • Great AAC App!

    by Brukitbrukitbrukitbrukit

    Great app for kids with special needs. Love that they added so many more categories to what was previously known as the ComApp 3 such as actions, emotions and activities. It's versatile because it can be used to help with language acquisition but also can help to expand a child's with a limited verbal repertoire!

  • Great app

    by Fran0418

    Expanding Language is an app that serves a dual purpose as an educational tool and communication device. The app uses vibrant real life professional quality pictures that can be customized to say a word or phrase to teach expressive language skills with an auditory model that reflects the level of language that the child is working towards. The app is easy to navigate, has instructions, and an adult control (math problem) that must be answered correctly before administration settings are changed. I absolutely love the thoughtfulness that went in to designing a professional quality interface that is bright and colorful but limits the visual distractions and creates an easy to use application for children with disabilities.

  • Excellent app, works great

    by UCF

    I have used a wide variety of apps for students in my class, but nothing quite like this. Expanding Language is revolutionizing the way students learn. The autistic student I have this year loves using this app, and it is great way for him to learn as well as greatly improving communication between us. The wide variety of options and the level of customization in this app is simply amazing. Overall a great app, works all the time with no issues.
