    Grace autism app submitted for iPad

    Ciara O'Brien

    The Grace autism appaimed at helping non-verbal children with autism communicate has been submitted for the iPad.

    If you haven’t heard of Grace, it’s an app that was created by Wicklow mother Lisa Domican and developed by Steven Troughton-Smith. The app replaces the Picture Exchange System that many non-verbal children use. More about the app here.

    It’s a really great application; it’s even made the third spot in the top 10 grossing list in the App Store.

    Steven has blogged about submitting the iPad version, and is hoping it will be available on the first day of the new device.

      Hi Ciara,
      you may be interested in The West, the first Irish fiction app for iPhone…it’s being seen in the US as the first ‘enhanced ebook’ as it integrates text, spoken word, music + art. Apple store link below

      Hi Ciara,
      Read your post last week, think it’s an excellent idea, anything that makes living with autism more portable works for me.

      That is just brilliant.

      Thanks for your support Ciara. We have had a great reaction so far and I’m delighted that Steve has adapted it to iPad so quickly as users with more limited mobility will find that accessible.

      Presume this will come in Makaton as well. I’ll get it for my youngest when she’s old enough to use an iPhone/iPad.
