I am a certified Speech Language Pathologist, proudly endorsed by the American Speech Language Hearing Association (ASHA). Over the course of my fulfilling 40-year career, my primary joy has been helping individuals forge connections with the world through the power of speech and communication.
Throughout my professional journey, I have had the privilege of working with a diverse range of clients across various environments. Assisting them in swiftly returning to their daily routines has been an incredibly rewarding experience.
How APP2Speak Was Born
During my extensive career, I have created numerous speech boards and utilized various technological devices and apps, all aimed at enhancing communication for individuals with speech and communication impairments. While each of these tools had its merits, they also came with their own limitations and obstacles. Speech boards, though helpful, had their constraints. Many existing devices and apps were overly complex and financially inaccessible. Some relied on symbols and icons that didn’t resonate with my clients. After an exhaustive search, I realized the ideal product I envisioned did not yet exist.
I realized I needed to embrace the challenge and create an intuitive, photo-based, and reasonably priced speaking app—a true Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) application that my clients could seamlessly utilize. And so, APP2Speak was born.
What Makes APP2Speak Different
Leveraging my extensive experience, I developed APP2Speak to be the best app for speech impairments. It is a photo-based, user-friendly, and affordable solution. With full customization options, you can seamlessly incorporate your own photos, capture new ones within the app, and even personalize with familiar voices. By simply tapping a photo, users can express anything from a short phrase to a complex story. With preset photo pages and a text-to-speech feature, immediate speech and communication are made possible.
I Welcome Your Feedback
It is my hope that someone you know can find their voice with APP2Speak. I believe APP2Speak is the best AAC app (speaking app) for enabling people living with speech and communication impairments to become more independent and better connected with their world.
I welcome any feedback or comments you may have. We are continually working to improve and refine APP2Speak. Your input helps to make APP2Speak the best it can be.
