The TippyTalk app is the first of its kind; we are the first communication tool that removes the person living with the verbal disability from the limitations of same room communication and opens the door to the world around them.
How it works

Our app allows a person living with a verbal disability to communicate by translating pictures into text messages which are then sent to a family member or care givers phone or tablet. The app allows you the parent our caregiver to capture images that are uniquely identifiable and familiar to the person living with the verbal disability. You simply take a picture of an object, place, or person and apply the appropriate text. You can also reinforce language development by recording your voice over each picture insuring the person living with the disability will recognize and understand the message.
This communication is not restricted by distance the person living with the verbal disability can communicate with whomever they chose no matter where they may be in the world.

TippyTalk is unique in that it removes the person with the verbal disability from the limitations of same room communication and by doing so increases and promotes Communication, Independent choice, and Social inclusion, while also reducing the frustration for the person and the family living with the verbal disability.

No two TippyTalkers will be the same, each unit is extremely user friendly and simply to program. Putting the control back into the hands of the parent, after all no one knows their loved ones better than you do. No other product on the market today is offering the personalization, social-communication and independence that TippyTalk is providing. We are breaking down communication barriers by allowing the user to connect and communicate with two or more parties at the same time, while ensuring that this communication is not limited by distance or physical impairment.

**NOTE** The edit function in the app can be accessed by swiping in from the left of the screen and pressing the button that appears. If you forget your pin it can be reset by pressing the forgot pin and entering the master pin 1289.

Still Needs Work

The app works perfectly fine on newer devices, however, I can’t open the edit menu from my son’s iPad Mini (version 9.3.5.) which is proving to be very frustrating. I hope I won’t have to buy a new device just to get this to work. Otherwise, it looks like I’ll be cancelling my subscription until my son does get a new device.

Perfect for my client - from a SLP

I found, recommended and use this app for a client. A a speech language pathologist who specializes in AAC, TippyTalk was the best choice for him! My client has autism and is non verbal. His mom is visually impaired. TippyTalk will text her phone which uses the accessibility feature to read aloud to her! The created and team at TippyTalk have been amazing! They not only care about helping other acquire a voice to communicate, they genuinely care about the users of TippyTalk. I recommend trying TippyTalk and seeing how it may help your clients too!

Great app,

I have used the app for my son, he's verbal but selectively verbal so I figured it wouldn't hurt to try.
It's a great app and it's easy to navigate even for a 3yo. The downfall is the massive amounts of texts I got from Him asking for things that he really didn't want.
I appreciate the amount of time it took to build an app like this! And we are super thankful for the ability to be able to communicate with our son using it!

Developer Response ,

Hi Berghea
Thank you for sharing you experience with us.
I wonder if you should try and customize TippyTalk for your son, so that he could only request 1 or 2 items at first, and then you could add more options week by week. If you would like a Skype call to help with the process just email us at our speak with our customer support on the website. Again thank you for your feedback
