Essential Communication Skills Inventory App

ECSI IconOur newest app, the Essential Communication Skills Inventory App is an assessment tool that allows speech clinicians, families, teachers and care providers to comprehensively examine and document an individual's functional communication skills. This tool will provide a baseline of  performance in the areas of informal communication and quality of life indicators, including safety, leisure skills and independence.

It is designed to provide a map for developing skills that result in functional communication and/or lead to further exploration of augmented communication devices or methods. This tool is appropriate for chronological ages 2 through adulthood and is particularly helpful in targeting communication needs for those with a significant discrepancy between chronological age and demonstrated cognitive skills.

Coming Soon in iTunes!

Talk'n Photos

Talk'n Photos is a simple-to-navigate talking photo album. Completely customizable, this app allows you to add text and voice recording to album covers as well as each entry (picture) within an album. 

Photos or symbols may be uploaded from your camera, taken with your iPad/ iTouch/ iPhone or downloaded from a large number of free clip art/photo art web sites. Each photo appears in a 2x2 inch representation with unlimited albums and pages. Editing allows you to move, rotate, scale and re-sequence photos. Users create grids of three pictures horizontally and unlimited choices vertically. For example, an album cover may consist of an empty plate and verbal cue such as “I’m hungry”. Once activated, album contents could include photos of favorite food items.

Customized recordings allow the user to record single words or entire phrases to communicate the desired message. Simple navigation once inside the album consists of an arrow leading back to the initial album covers. This feature allows for easy navigation and prevents the user from becoming lost or confused by multiple interconnecting pages. Editing may be locked in order to prevent unwanted changes to programming. Your password, should you set one, will be emailed to the address of your choice.

The Book of Idioms

The Book of Idioms began as a project in Miss Sandy Shetka's North Education Center (NEC) classroom. Students developed idioms and then made large posters to match the words. The posters can be seen along the hallways of NEC, and in this beautiful book.

This book was laid out from the posters and produced in 2011 by the ATTAIN Lab at NEC. ATTAIN is the Assistive Technology Training and Information Network.

The students hope the Book of Idioms might be something you enjoy in your home or office, or as a gift. Proceeds from the book will be used to fund more art programs at NEC. The cost of the book is $7.00.


If you would like to purchase copies of this book,          please call 763-550-3120. Or email Deb Barnes at debarnes@district287.org
