Every voice should be heard
CoughDrop users speak over 1.5 million words per month and growing

Some people are hard to hear -- through no fault of their own. Disabilities like autism, cerebral palsy, Down syndrome, Angelman and Rett syndrome make it harder for many individuals to communicate on their own. Powerful software called Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) can fill the gaps and make every voice heard.

At CoughDrop we work to help bring out the voices of those with complex communication needs through powerful open-source technology that easily adapts to the individual and supports everyone around them trying to help them succeed.

For Communicators

Communication system should be unique to each individual. CoughDrop has vocabulary sets for many different levels, with built-in supports, assessment tools, and vocabulary progression tools to start basic and grow over time.

CoughDrop is one of the most flexible apps available, with support for two-way messaging, remote modeling, eye or head tracking and switches, all to give the user more flexibility and support.

For Families

Learning to communicate takes help from the people around us. CoughDrop families can use the app on all their devices, and it includes activity ideas and strategies to help families and friends learn how they can help make communication happen.

Experts and staff need to be able to see what's working and what isn't. CoughDrop has built-in reports and goal-setting tools to keep everyone on the same page and track progress over time.
