Apps for speech impairment include an Alternative Augmentative Communication (AAC) app that help individuals who are non-speaking or those whose speech is not usually understood by others. The standard App package for speech includes Proloquo2Go, but other AAC apps such as Proloquo4Text, TouchChat HD, or LAMP Words for Life can be substituted.
