Need an autism app but can’t afford it? We can help

I am pleased to introduce Allison Knopp, Development & Public Relations Associate at Easter Seals DuPage and the Fox Valley Region, as a guest blogger today.

Check out this new Proloquo2Go App Donation Program

by Allison Knopp

Good news for Easter Seals and autism blog readers who have been reading all of the posts we’ve been publishing lately about new apps for autism, but are worried this new technology might be too expensive: AssistiveWare (an accessibility and assistive technology company based in The Netherlands) has recognized that not everyone can afford their wildly popular Proloquo2Go communication app, so they launched a new Proloquo2Go App Donation Program.

AssistiveWare sought us out here at Easter Seals DuPage and the Fox Valley Region as a partner in this program because of our assistive technology department’s outstanding reputation. Easter Seals DuPage and the Fox Valley Region has been working with AssistiveWare over the past couple of months to develop an application process that will determine a family’s practical and financial need for the donation of the application. Any applicants will first be reviewed by our financial department for compliance with the financial need requirements of the donation program, and if those requirements are met, the application will be screened by our Assistive Technology department to determine if Proloquo2Go meets the needs of the client.

Easter Seals DuPage and the Fox Valley Region is very excited to partner with AssistiveWare to help distribute Proloquo2Go to individuals who need this support for communication. Along with AssistiveWare, we too believe Proloquo2Go can make a difference in the lives of many individuals with communication impairments.

This donation program is open to anyone in the country. For more information and the policy for the Proloquo2Go App Donation Program, email Easter Seals DuPage and the Fox Valley Region’s Assistive Technology Department at assistivetech (at) eastersealsdfvr (dot org).

    My son Noah is 8 years old and non verbal. He uses the proloquo2go app on the Ipad at his school in kingston. I finally got enough money to purchase the Ipad but this app costs $200 and I am unable to purchase it.


  34. Patricia Wright Says:

    Darlene – your desire to support your daughter’s communication with technology is fantastic. Ipads and applications have worked for many individuals. That said it is important to match the communication device/tool to the needs of an individual. THis matching is accomplished with an assessment by a skilled therapist. Comprehensive Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) assessments are described here: http://aac.unl.edu/yaack/c0.html. A proper match is critical for the greatest opportunity for success with any communication tool/device.

    To find out about equipment loans I encourage you to contact your state Tech Act Program (http://assistivetech.net/webresources/stateTechActProjects.php). These programs often know where equipment can be accessed and they also may be able to recommend quality therapists in your area that could assist with assessments.


  35. darlene Says:

    My daughter is non verbal/ambulitory and severly impacted by CP. What measures can I take in oder to give her a chance with an i-pad for communicaion purposes? whether it be loaned or discounted through Easter Seals? Or do you have any better suggesions?
    Sincerely,
    Darlene Leuci

    PS: My daughter is 21 and hasn’t any means of communication, not even Mayer/Johnson picture boards! We can use any help available.
