Recommendations for using this app:

I first became familiar with Compass on DynaVox's devices. I was extremely happy when they turned it into an iPad app for SLPs to use. It's a great way for me to help bring in some AAC strategies with my students who don't have their own device but could still benefit from the strategies. I love that it's free for ASHA-certified SLPs!

How could this app be better?

It took me awhile to learn, but that's just because it's pretty comprehensive. .
