Sentence Banking

I’ve conducted hundreds of AAC assessments and have to say how important having P4Text in my toolkit is. Adults that insist on original speech take too long to generate sentences from scratch. 90% of the time, the other person walks away before it’s ready. Sentence banking allows the user or helper to anticipate events and prepare what to say ahead, so that sentences are ready with a press or two of the screen.

A neurological disease has taken my speech. Thanks to the speech people at Johns Hopkins, I discovered the power of Proloquo4Text. I type. It speaks. It helps me feel whole.
