Communication is how we make connections and build relationships with others. Communication comes in many forms such as oral speech, gestures, written communication, and for some Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC). Alexicom Tech has created unique AAC systems for mobile devices and computers to help people communicate when they cannot speak or need assistance communicating with others. We are unique because we have specificpage sets and apps for different ages with both phrase-based and single word page sets. Each app has language and images for those ages (i.e. .child, teen, adult). With the choice of free apps or one-time purchase apps, AAC can be used by anyone and anywhere. In addition, Alexicom Tech's cloud-based AAC subscription provides remote programming and easy customization for groups of users. Our real images benefit a variety of age groups from young to matured adults so they feel comfortable with their AAC systems and can quickly identify the cell meaning. People often quickly recognize pictures such as a favorite drink image, the Target symbol, or the cover of a favorite book. Pairing the image, text, and spoken words along with partner modeling, allows our users to quickly learn to make requests, comments, and share information about a favorite topic.
Each AAC user is an individual so it is important to Alexicom Tech that each user be able to easily create and customize communication pages with vocabulary meaningful to him/her. Start using Alexicom Tech's AAC apps immediately with premade pages including frequently used vocabulary such as core words that are incorporated within each page set. With extra features such as switch compatibility and scanning, text to speech, word prediction, data tracking, plus consistent vocabulary placement to support motor planning, Alexicom Tech's AAC apps meet the needs of many people. We believe everyone deserves to be heard!

" My three children have been using the Alexicom AAC on their iPads for several years. They use it in speech therapy weekly and are able to communicate so much better and are less frustrated in not being able to be understood. I am amazed at how well they can go thru the pages to find their answer to questions and express their desires. I especially like the picture format versus stick figures, it is more realistic. They have expanded their vocabulary, memory, and skills of communication. This program has been the best for us."
"This is an excellent app! Thank you for developing it and keeping it affordable for patients!"
