About this app

CoughDrop is a simple, modern AAC communication and support tool that empowers individuals and the teams around them through a paid coughdrop.com account. It is a premium, full-featured communication app built for individuals with autism, cerebral palsy, Down syndrome, Angelman syndrome, Rett syndrome, or other complex communication needs. CoughDrop is flexible and configurable enough to work with the access and comprehension needs of many communicators.

PLEASE NOTE: CoughDrop can be installed without purchasing, but a coughdrop.com account is required to log in, and functionality will become limited after the two-month trial period has ended.

The app includes starter boards for different levels of communication, and boards with large or small buttons can be personalized using the rich symbol set, user-provided images or camera photos, user-recorded audio, speech synthesis, etc.

CoughDrop runs on multiple devices, so you can log in on your tablet, phone and computer and have access to the same communication tools and interface. In addition, users can be linked so parents, therapists and supervisors can access a communicator's boards from their own devices to better facilitate modeling, and to make it easier to modify boards without taking away the communicator's device. The built-in reporting and messaging tools also help the support team have a consistent strategy and know what's working across locations and times.

really enjoyed the trial of the app. im looking to purchase it eventually. i can't currently afford it, but the twice a year half off sales are wonderful. free text based apps will suffice until i can get the money for it, though symbol based apps are more helpful for me when im very overwhelmed. i found this app to have a ton of very robust vocabulary, a lot of great options, and great customization. overall a great choice if it works for you/the person you support.

Major glitch. It only works on the PC and tablet. On A mobile phone, we can't get it to work. AND, if it's free to download, but then it won't let you use the app unless you buy something. Why not make it cost money and come with everything automatically when you make the account? This is the only thing we can find right now.

i really love this app, however it's not so good for practical use on my device. i'm 16 and i have nonverbal autism, i use typing and symbols. however i have found that the coughdrop keyboard function is very slow, it takes me minutes to type one word. i also cannot use the settings which turn off "voice at every button press" and "vocalise linked buttons", as these seem to stop any linked buttons from working. my device is quite old and only runs android 4. i am running out of characters sorry
