A free translation platform for nonverbal autistics and their families

With 1 in 68 people on the autism spectrum, there is an immense population dependant on Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) methods through various devices and apps.

Assist is an innovative, free, web-based platform that involves the whole family by creating a collaborative communication environment. The system translates messages from the AAC format to text and icons in real-time, creating a more inclusive communication experience between nonverbal autistic individuals and their family members.
