1 out of 68 children have Autism. Over 40% of Autistic children are non-verbal.

70-80 % of children with Cerebral Palsy have impaired communication skills.

These are just a few heart-wrenching statistics related to non-verbal children. We know what it's like to have a child that is struggling to communicate. Communication and basic expression is a right of all individuals, and our Mission is to help them.

Speechify is an App for mobile devices, designed to help non-verbal and minimally verbal children and adults communicate better. The intuitive, yet elegant grid based design is easy to setup and use, and can support multiple languages.

SpeechifyApp is currently available on the iOS app store, as well on this Kickstarter . We are attempting to raise funds for the Android version of SpeechifyApp, so that we can reach even more non-verbal kids around the world. 

April is Autism Awareness Month. Help us develop the Android version of SpeechifyApp, and help millions of non-verbal children in the world communicate.

Risks and challenges

Kickstarter is an all or nothing model. Either we raise 100% of our $488 goal or all of it gets returned to the backers.
Please note that the $488 is only a fraction of the overall cost of design and development. We plan on using the funds from the iOS version of SpeechifyApp (currently available on the app store as well as this Kickstarter), along with the funds from this campaign, to complete our design and development.
