TapToTalk AAC for Angelman Syndrome

Angelman Syndrome (AS) is a neuro-genetic disorder. Symptoms include severe developmental delays, seizures, sleep disorders, movement and balance problems, an unusually happy disposition, and severe speech impairment.

Children with AS have the same need (and right) to communicate as do all other kids. We especially like the Angelman Syndrome Foundation's slogan: "I may not speak, but I have much to say." We have heard from many parents of children with AS that they have had great success using TapToTalk as their AAC solution. Most tell us TapToTalk was recommended by other parents, and we are proud to be able to help them help their kids communicate.

Children with AS may be misdiagnosed with autism or cerebral palsy. Regardless of cause, TapToTalk provides portable, customizable, socially acceptable and affordable AAC for children with expressive language problems.

Here are some resources for AS:

Angelman Syndrome Foundation - United States
Foundation for Angelman Syndrome Therapeutics - United States
Angelman Syndrome Association - Australia
ASSERT - United Kingdom
Canadian Angelman Syndrome Society - Canada
Angelman New Zealand - New Zealand
