Coughdrop is one of the few AAC applications available on the iPad, Android, and the window's platform. Coughdrop is also available in over 20 different languages and can now be used with PCS symbols. It comes with Quick Core 24, 60, and 112 buttons layout with many more options on the open board. Let's take a look at this application that could be your best or only option for a bilingual device for your student. 



Participants will learn the basic set up of the language system and how to get started with this application.

Participants will learn how to use this app with multiple languages and how to use the translation feature to match new boards.
