Chicago, Illinois (PRWEB) May 09, 2013
Special Learning, Inc., the leading global provider of mobile technology applications and educational resources for the autism community, announced today its support of American Speech-Language-Hearing Association’s (ASHA) Better Speech and Hearing month by extending its drastic 90 percent price reduction on its mobile app for teaching communication, the Communicating Basic Needs app. Known as ComApp.3, the critically-acclaimed interactive app is designed to help individuals with autism and other language delays express their basic wants and needs. Special Learning has also slashed the prices on all of its downloadable teaching tools and training products by 50 percent to spread awareness of speech and communication disorders.
As Better Speech and Hearing Month strives to promote effective treatment solutions for speech and hearing disorders, Special Learning is making its highly innovative communication app more affordable than ever.
“At Special Learning, our mission is to offer every parent, provider and educator a genuine chance to help a child with special needs live an abundant and fulfilling life,” said Karen Chung, Founder and Chief Executive Officer at Special Learning. “In support of the speech and hearing community, we are proud to offer an affordable and accessible communication solution that can have a direct and lasting impact for an individual with speech and hearing needs.”
With a robust, yet simplistic interface, ComApp.3 allows individuals with autism and language deficits to communicate their essential needs and wants. With the ability to customize multiple features of the app, including voices, pictures, and backgrounds, right from the device, ComApp.3 can become a personalized communication tool for any individual.
Developed under the guidance of Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBAs), the third and latest version of Special Learning’s mobile communication app also includes a reporting function offered on the previous versions that tracks frequency data by category and by individual item. Through the app’s unique backend web interface, the Mobile Dashboard, parents and providers can also run reports to track the frequency data from the device, and, most importantly, save the settings for future use through the synchronization function.
ComApp.3 is available for iOS, Android and Kindle Fire devices, and can be purchased and downloaded from iTunes, the App Store, or Google Play.
