The first app expressly made to give parents, teachers and therapists an effective, customizable, portable tool for visual communication to the child or adult suffering from Autistic Spectrum Disorders or intellectually impaired.

The peculiarity of the app lies in its focus on setting a gradual path in the communication exchange which starts from the adult and is oriented to the child. The emphasis is put on the sharing of meaning; then the autistic person is encouraged to an "outgoing" active involvement.
