MoAT's Apps of the Week
GoTalk WOW
GoTalk WOW is an easy-to-use augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) app designed specifically for the Apple® Watch. Enjoy quick access to customized messages right on your wrist! Record your voice or use the built-in text-to-speech to express yourself. Unlimited messages may be stored. Come into MoAT to see it in action. (This device is not available for loan.)

If you have talked to Laura at MoAT about AAC on an iPad for users on the autism spectrum any time in the last 6 months, you certainly already know all about InnerVoice . This app continues to be one of our favorites. This app uses AI to help the communicator to engage. The results are incredible and the price amazing. This AAC app is only $4.99!
The Lending Library and Demo Center at MoAt are now open.
