At the Autism Society National Conference - Superplus, a Norwegian based Edtech Company focused on improving the lives of special needs children, today announced the availability of SuperSpeak, an assistive technology application for nonverbal children.

SuperSpeak’s cloud-based service allows for a consistent vocabulary across multiple devices, that parents, teachers, and therapist can use. When taking and adding photos of familiar, everyday items such as people, places, things and actions, to use for communication, all items are saved in the child’s “SuperSpeak profile” and will sync across all of their devices and user accounts.

“Using real pictures creates a direct correlation for children who struggle with communication,” says Roald Øien, a Norwegian Autism Research Scientist and visiting Research Scientist at Yale Child Study Center.

Features include:

*Cloud based service that provides access for parents, teachers and Superkiddos across multiple devices
*2GB storage
*Ability to have multiple unique profiles under one account
*Ability to share access to profiles with different user accounts (Parent/Teacher)

SuperSpeak is now available in the Apple app store and can be downloaded here: http://get.superspeak.today. Learn more at http://www.superpl.us/superspeak.
