Summary

MyChoicePad is an iPad app to help people communicate. It is the only iPad app that uses the Makaton symbols and signs and was developed in collaboration with The Makaton Charity.

We will explain how this was developed and show you how it has evolved into a communication tool that is used by people with learning or communication difficulties, their families, in schools and by health professionals. We will tell you about current clinical trials and would value your feedback and ideas about future developments.
