Proloquo2Go is an award-winning symbol-based communication app that gives a voice to those who cannot speak. Over 200,000 people already use this AAC app as a powerful tool for expressing themselves and increasing their communication skills and language development. Its innovative features let users, parents, teachers and therapists quickly personalize the app.
Proloquo2Go is an AAC (Augmentative and Alternative Communication) app used by people with autism, Down syndrome, cerebral palsy and other diagnoses. It is available in English, Spanish, French, and Dutch for iPad, iPhone, iPod touch and Apple Watch.
“Users can open Proloquo2Go and begin to use it for effective communication immediately” – Susan Berkowitz, MS-SLP, AAC Consultant.
• Crescendo™, a complete research-based core word vocabulary with 10,000+ fringe words
• Quickly and easily customisable – everything from the vocabulary to the appearance
• Designed for a range of fine-motor and visual skills with options like 23 pre-programmed grid sizes
• Use your regional vocabulary and accent with Australian, British and American English, European and Canadian French, Castilian and American Spanish, and Dutch and Flemish. The app also supports bilingual use, and you can even switch languages mid-sentence
• 100 natural-sounding free voices across all languages, including children’s voices
Proloquo2Go puts the user’s development first with features based on clinical knowledge and user research. Studies show that just 200-400 words make up 80% of what we say – known as core words. Combined with best practices like modeling, teaching core words has been shown to grow language and communication skills. Our Crescendo™ vocabulary is based on this insight and puts core words front and center for easy access.
Grows communication skills
Proloquo2Go is one of the few AAC apps designed to support all users, from beginning to advanced. This lets someone develop from single words to full grammatical sentences in the same app. With over 10,000 words available, there’s no limit on what you can say. Our Progressive Language feature reveals words step by step. This helps communicators learn words and their location as their vocabulary gradually grows.
Research has shown that consistent placement of objects supports easy recognition, known as motor planning. With this in mind, Proloquo2Go's thematic templates keep core words in the same places throughout the vocabulary. This helps communicators by reducing time wasted trying to find words.
Easy customisation and accessibility
Buttons, pages, navigation and access - the whole app is customisable. With just a few taps, you can make it suit both vocabulary and accessibility needs. For the most important things, you can add your own buttons. The app comes with more than 25,000 symbols for new words – but you can use your own photos too. Accessibility settings support scanning and Apple’s VoiceOver, for users with fine-motor challenges and vision impairments. These make the app work with how you’re comfortable using it.
We’re there for you every step of the way. Help articles in the app are there whenever you need them. New to AAC?

Ratings and Reviews
Have a child with no speech or limited speech, this program has helped my non verbal son to speak, spell, communicate and more. He was non verbal, frustrated with people persisting he use pecs cards to communicate. He immediately engaged with this and hearing vocabulary it wasn’t long and he was imitating words as he himself explored the program.
Thank you to the creator.

Hi Dazzleds, thank you for the positive review and compliment!
