The TippyTalk app is the first of its kind; we are the first communication tool that removes the person living with the verbal disability from the limitations of same room communication and opens the door to the world around them.
How it works
Our app allows a person living with a verbal disability to communicate by translating pictures into text messages which are then sent to a family member or care givers phone or tablet. The app allows you the parent our caregiver to capture images that are uniquely identifiable and familiar to the person living with the verbal disability. You simply take a picture of an object, place, or person and apply the appropriate text. You can also reinforce language development by recording your voice over each picture insuring the person living with the disability will recognize and understand the message.
This communication is not restricted by distance the person living with the verbal disability can communicate with whomever they chose no matter where they may be in the world.
TippyTalk is unique in that it removes the person with the verbal disability from the limitations of same room communication and by doing so increases and promotes Communication, Independent choice, and Social inclusion, while also reducing the frustration for the person and the family living with the verbal disability.
No two TippyTalkers will be the same, each unit is extremely user friendly and simply to program. Putting the control back into the hands of the parent, after all no one knows their loved ones better than you do. No other product on the market today is offering the personalization, social-communication and independence that TippyTalk is providing. We are breaking down communication barriers by allowing the user to connect and communicate with two or more parties at the same time, while ensuring that this communication is not limited by distance or physical impairment.
**NOTE** The edit function in the app can be accessed by swiping in from the left of the screen and pressing the button that appears. If you forget your pin it can be reset by pressing the forgot pin and entering the master pin 1289.

The app works perfectly fine on newer devices, however, I can’t open the edit menu from my son’s iPad Mini (version 9.3.5.) which is proving to be very frustrating. I hope I won’t have to buy a new device just to get this to work. Otherwise, it looks like I’ll be cancelling my subscription until my son does get a new device.
This app is a life changer! Mere words cannot express the delight in being able to communicate via text message - real communications! 5 stars doesn't begin to rate the experience of communicating with the non-verbal!!
The premise behind the app is amazing. The set up was so easy and it guided me through each step. I was impressed by the ease from start to finish. I can't wait to start using this app and seeing how many other families it will help!
Great tool for nonverbal kids. I can't wait to see how it matures.
We are just getting started with the app and love it.
Absolutely love this app! The interface is very intuitive and it works great! Excellent!
I found, recommended and use this app for a client. A a speech language pathologist who specializes in AAC, TippyTalk was the best choice for him! My client has autism and is non verbal. His mom is visually impaired. TippyTalk will text her phone which uses the accessibility feature to read aloud to her! The created and team at TippyTalk have been amazing! They not only care about helping other acquire a voice to communicate, they genuinely care about the users of TippyTalk. I recommend trying TippyTalk and seeing how it may help your clients too!

Great experience. Appreciate this as it services a noble cause. I'll definitely recommend.
This app has been very helpful for us! Thank you!!
Ever try to keep a set of PECS cards current and intact? Don't have to anymore! And: so you have to pay for it. Seriously? That's the big beef?? This is not a game; it is a fully customizable adaptive language tool you can use to reach a nonverbal individual...and let them reach back.
It is so great to see an app that can do this. I have brother who is non-verbal and this is perfect. I have been asking speech therapists for years for something like this and always out of our reach. Made picture books etc...but this is fabulous. Forget the negative reviews on this, these guys aren't scammers - you just have to read their website or the app info. Thank you to this Dad for what he has done for his daughter and others with verbal disabilities.
Be careful I tried the free trial and it says on the home page just try 1 month free I only did this to be able to look at the app and then they have automatically started charging me monthly subscription not happy I wasn't t even using the app scammers!
Extremely frustrating & not at all user friendly. I was so excited after seeing the video about it. Will be cancelling my subscription after the month end if I had no further success with working it out.
