Therapy Box provides augmentative communication solutions on iPads, iPhone, and Android devices. It seeks to apply the latest innovations in app development to meet the needs of those who have communication difficulties due to a range of disabilities.
The flagship text-to-speech app, Predictable is designed to give a voice to someone who is unable to use their own. Predictable 6 will be released in 2020, introducing a variety of new features making it faster and easier to communicate, to manage the users’ app content, and enhancing the head tracking functionality.
Scene & Heard uses visual scenes to help improve context-based communication. It is designed for people with limited language skills and is particularly helpful for children with autism. Users need to click on the images in the scene to hear a description of what is happening.
ChatAble is a PCS symbol-based display app designed for children or adults who are unable to write or speak. It provides a grid of symbols that can be pressed to speak words and construct sentences. It uses Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) methods to promote language development and improved communication skills.
Vocatempo is an augmentative communication app designed for people with dysarthria. It allows its users to use their distinct vocalisations to select the word or phrase they want to speak. The app can be trained with a set of vocalisations to trigger spoken messages.
As well as selling apps, Therapy Box has a number of bundle combinations designed to suit a variety of user needs. Assessment kits are always a popular option for departments or organisations.
