App Description

The Functional Communication System is a revolutionary new approach to communication on the iPad. Instead of giving you a pre-made package that you have to learn how to use, the Functional Communication System is designed to be easy to customize, allowing you to truly create an application that reflects the user's world.

"The Functional Communication System certainly improves communication with its use of real images vs. symbols as the user does not have to learn the symbols" - speechpathologyapps.com

The Functional Communication System app does not use symbols, but rather real images (and videos) from our Functional Skills System software.

"Video is far and beyond the best feature" - anonymous Occupational Therapist

The video functionality allows you use the Functional Communication System app as more than just a communication tool. The built-in videos also make it a great literacy & learning tool, and you can shoot your own videos right in the application.

Don't like our pictures (or videos)? Go ahead and change them - it's easy! All video, image, and audio files can be changed in the application. If you don't like the way things are laid out in the app, you can easily move things around both on-screen and in between categories.

-Includes 500 core vocabulary words to get you started
-Built-in security settings to lock the application and prevent accidental edits and deletion
-Fully customizable (use your own photos, videos and audio
-Customizable color schemes
-Easily expandable (ties back into our Functional Skills System library via in-app purchase)
-Keyboard for custom text entry (requires $1.99 in-app purchase)
