Tap images. Type words. Speak. Proloquo2Go is an easy to use communication app for people who cannot speak or need help being understood. Featuring natural sounding voices, including real children’s voices, Proloquo2Go is a simple yet powerful AAC (augmentative and alternative communication) tool. The app is fully customizable and can be utilized to build language skills and grow with a person’s communication, supporting both beginning and advanced communicators.
Parents, therapists, teachers and users around the world recognize Proloquo2Go as the gold standard in AAC solutions. The app is used by people with autism, Down syndrome, cerebral palsy, Angelman syndrome, and others with speech difficulties. The app is available in English, Spanish, French, and Dutch and supports bilingual use, so you can switch languages on the fly.
Proloquo2Go in action:
Learn and grow
Studies show that just 200-400 words make up 80% of what we say. Known as core words, they act as the basis of Proloquo2Go’s research-based Crescendo™ vocabulary. Users can grow from single words to full sentences in the same app. Crescendo puts core words in consistent locations for easy access and motor-planning. The vocabulary works with AAC best practices like modeling (where you use an AAC system to talk with the user) to develop language skills. Crescendo offers no limit on language development with a 10,000+ fringe word vocabulary and customizable vocabulary levels. Finally, with Progressive Language, words are gradually revealed step-by-step, helping users learn words and their location as their communication expands.
Customizing Proloquo2Go is a breeze! Quickly and easily add new words. Use the app’s built-in library of 25,000 symbols or use your own photos by taking pictures within the app or selecting them from your photo library. For users with fine-motor challenges and vision impairments, Proloquo2Go offers options like 23 pre-programmed grid sizes and accessibility settings which support switch scanning and Apple’s VoiceOver screen reader. Everything from appearance to access is customizable so you can make it your own.
Type and speak
Besides tapping images, Proloquo2Go also lets you type what you want to say. The app includes a Grid Keyboard arranged alphabetically for people learning to type. For more experienced typists, Proloquo2Go includes a Typing View with a QWERTY keyboard and word prediction that offers suggestions based on what you are typing.
Hello! ¡Hola! Bonjour! Hallo!
Proloquo2Go lets you select a language and region for the Crescendo vocabulary. Two languages can be used at the same time, allowing seamless bilingual speech. Over 100 included downloadable natural-sounding adult and children’s voices rounds out your choices to use the app your way.

It’s been a year. The app doesn’t perform for the severely autistic. Far too complicated. It needs to have a setting where there’s three or four options per page. Difficult to tailor. I asked for a refund. Denied. So I’m out however many 100s of dollars this was (I try not to think about it).
If you have a typical child that needs some help, this may be perfect. If you have a non-verbal severely autistic child, save your money instead.

Hi seaninott, again, we are very sorry that Proloquo2Go did not meet your expectations. Our team is here to help you in any way we can, Many of our team members are parents of children that use Proloquo2Go and are committed to supporting other parents. Please know that it is possible to set up a new user in Proloquo2Go with a blank vocabulary with a grid of three or four buttons. However, it is recommended that a grid size be selected based on what an AAC user can see and touch and not based on cognitive skills, receptive language or what we think a person can do. So, it is actually good to provide access to a wide vocabulary and slowly teach a person the meaning of words and the location of words through modeling. This is considered an AAC best practice. For more information, you may want to check out this article on choosing an AAC grid size (www.assistiveware.com/learn-aac/choosing-a-grid-size). Our team would really love to reach out to you as we have many resources that may allow your child to use Proloquo2Go more effectively. You are welcome to join AssistiveWare’s Family members AAC community Facebook Group (www.facebook.com/groups/241684205905600) where you can connect with other parents with similar situations. Many of the people in the community are parents of autistic children that use Proloquo2Go, so you may be able to gather suggestions to help your child. Our team is also available to chat with you through Messenger on our AssistiveWare Facebook page (www.facebook.com/AssistiveWare). Finally, as always, we are available to help with issues or to answer questions by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Whenever you want to reach us, we are here. Peace! :-)
