About half of the children diagnosed with severe autism do not develop the communications skills they need to communicate effectively. SPEAK all! is an application developed at Purdue University that is designed to help children with special needs learn how to construct sentences. Children with severe communication disorders may require assistance in the form of augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) to help them develop language skills.

SPEAK all! allows a parent or instructor to record audio and custom images that the child can arrange and play back using icons. Made for use on the iPad, this application can be used in an exchange-based approach to developing communication skills. The inexpensive app format makes this system more portable and user-friendly than other systems of its kind.
