3 bunny slippers. Hillary briefly demonstrated Proloquo2go and TouchChat. She pointed out several sites designed to help special education staff choose appropriate Augmentative apps for students.

Great resources for comparing and becoming aware of AAC apps. Thank you for acknowledging that an SLP would and should be the driving force in determining the most appropriate AAC apps given the students language development, access, etc.
