  – Fiona received funding from all five Dragons on Irish Dragons Den to create this app. Suitable for adults and children, image2talk can be completely customised to meet the communication needs of individuals with communication disorder such as Autism, Aphasia, Down Syndrome, Pervasive Developmental Disorders, Stroke or any type of disorder where verbal speech is impaired.

Grace App

Grace App was created by Irish Mum to two children with autism, Lisa
Domican. It is a non-speaking, simple picture exchange system developed
for people with Autism to communicate their needs independently. Users
can select pictures to form a semantic sentence which they can then
share, by tilting the iPhone or iTouch to create a full screen view,
and pointing at each card to hear the listener read each word. Also for
use on an ipad.
