Flip Writer AAC app

Flip Writer AAC app   is a communication tool for individuals with hearing and speech disorder who benefit from text based information for the iPhone and iPad.  The app also features  high quality text to speech, providing a voice to those with a speech impairment. Although OT’s specialty is not communication, there are times when communication becomes a barrier due to aphasia, hearing impairment, requiring a method to gather and share information with clients, friends or others when working in a hospital, clinic or other settings. Flip Writer app for iOS devices provides a tool to exchange messages with a mirrored writing environment for both communicating partners.

Flip Writer AAC app is again available in iTunes and currently free. Regularly priced at 24.99 (I believe), this is a great deal and provides a tool that might come in handy for communication with clients or others. At 32 MB it won’t take a lot of space on your device like other symbols/picture based communication apps.
