MyChoicePad is a new educational iPad app that uses Makaton® symbols, signs, and video with real sounding speech to enable choice and communication for children and adults with learning or communication difficulties. It uses 450 concepts from the Core Vocabulary Makaton® language programme and has further options to purchase additional vocabulary as in-app purchases.
The MyChoicePad App is all about choice, self expression and building on and improving communication skills. Developed for a range of users it can be used across a wide variety of situations.
As well as helping create the brand and website behind MyChoicePad we helped re-develop and plan the new look interface for the App. An exciting and worth while project to be involved in the app went through several iterations during trials. Because of the bright colours involved with the branding it was clear these distracted some users. To combat this we designed two different looks to the interface. One stripped back version for screens the interactive users will see while the backend users of the app see the full brand look and feel. With the success it has had in trials we look forward to working with the MyChoicePad team into the future.
Miles Away From HQ
We have used the app to increase confidence to communicate. We wanted an easy to use aid that would help in lots of different settings that would not need specialist knowledge to be able to make grids… we found it very cost effective and versatile.
