Did you know that you can change the symbol skin tones system wide in three robust AAC apps without the need for any add-on purchases or doing button by button programming?
Yup…. Grid for iPad by Smartbox Assistive Technology, Proloquo2Go by AssistiveWare & TouchChat with WordPower by Saltillo all currently offer this feature and several other app developers have it under development for release in 2021. Such a cool feature to support diversity in AAC 🙌🏾. Knowing that this feature exists is my free Tuesday Tip.
If you want to know more…. a short “how to” video and 1-page handout are available as exclusive content to monthly subscribers on my new Ko-fi page: https://ko-fi.com/omazingkidsaac
My Ko-fi page has a specific focus on providing information and tools for feature matching, short videos highlighting features in apps, ways to incorporate books and toys to keep AAC fun, etc… with a very small $4 per month subscription to cover tech expenses and time to keep resources up to date/sustainable.
Thanks to everyone for your support 😊
