LetSTalk iPad & Android App
The Speech Therapy Team of Heep Hong Society is happy to launch an application entitled ‘LetSTalk’, which is designed to help children with autism express their needs and integrate into the community. It includes 350 pictures of common vocabularies, sentence-making function, customised storage of pictures and vocabularies, etc. With the aid of the application, autistic children can communicate with others anytime they wish.
The application has been tested in the Society's service centres during its development. Parents who had tried it were impressed by its user-friendly design. Its extensive stock of pictures and sentence-making function also serve to motivate children to express their emotions and needs, and to build their confidence in communicating with others.
The ‘LetSTalk’ app won the 'Best Digital Inclusion (Product / Application) Certificate of Merit in the Hong Kong ICT Awards 2013 for its contribution towards helping children with autism communicate with others.
