Grace iPhone App Gives Autism a Voice
A new iPhone application can now offer hope to autistic children who have difficulties with speech.
A new iPhone application can now offer hope to autistic children who have difficulties with speech. The Grace App was developed by Australian-born Lisa Domican to help her ten-year-old autistic daughter Grace communicate.
The application is similar to the Picture Exchange Communications System, with four-hundred pictures and symbols available in the program for autistic children to learn and use to construct sentences. Lisa believes the application has improved Grace’s speech capabilities, now able to construct a few short-sentenced requests for drinks or food. With more features planned for the future the Grace App is already available to purchase for $37.99 and is also compatible with the iPad and the iPhone Touch.
