My Review 

The iPACs is great. You can use the camera or download pictures from the internet combined with label and voice to create a great communication system. There are 6 images per page to choose from. The images are quite small which is challenging visually and motorically, but it's easy enough to open up one image and have it cover the entire screen. I use one image with my son to show him what we are doing or have him choose something and he simply runs his finger down the screen to activate the voice. It's great because we always have something with us to help with communication. I don't know if it's also available for the iPad.

Would you recommend this to a friend? 


Terri Mauro, About.com Children With Special Needs, says:

iPACS can be purchased from the iTunes Store, for iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad. It is produced by AdastraSoft, which, according to its site, was "founded to address what's lacking in special education tools."
