I was really happy to find this great deal from Educents! My 8 year old loves the Toca Life apps, but somehow we didn't have Toca Life: Town yet. What good fortune that it's currently FREE for Educents readers only! It's a really simple process to download it, but you won't find it free if you try to just go to the App Store. Get this great app free right now, just by following this link and adding it to your cart. Then, enjoy great fun from Toca Boca!
Bottom Line: Total Talk is a brand new addition to the Augmentative and Alternative Communication app world, and it's definitely worth a look. It includes options for many styles and levels of communication. There's a free primer online to view for more information, which will aid speech-language pathologists and assistive technology specialists with feature matching. Like most full-feature AAC apps, it's not inexpensive. But at $219, it's comparable to the other big-name apps, and with a lot of features that make it stand out.
