These are the words of a teacher from Le Trèfle, a centre for autistic children in Belgium, collected after having discovered the different features and strong points of the Vocalyx application during the training conducted by Capanovi on Friday 20 April.
▸Vocalyx in Belgium !
The center for autistic children Le Trèfle welcomed in April 2018 Vocalyx to discover the application and its usefulness for autistic children.
A presentation was given by Dr Olivier De Masfrand, founding director of the company, and Clémentine Garric, specialist in Cognitive Sciences and developer of the application's communication and re-education content, during which they introduced the role of Vocalyx, and trained the teachers and parents present to its different functionalities adapted to communicate with children in the autism spectrum.
▸Vocalyx ! The application perfectly adapted for some autistic children
It should be known that Vocalyx is not only intended for people who cannot speak, but also for people who have difficulty expressing their ideas and feelings like autistic people.
Vocalyx's strong point is the personalization: our tool is malleable and easy to use to create new communication keyboards with messages and photos specific to the user's context. Vocalyx can therefore be adapted to any user and any situation.
With its different features, its customizable keyboards, and its voice synthesis, the application can help autistic children express their feelings and needs easily.
▸Learn how to use Vocalyx
After the presentation, the Vocalyx team organized a workshop to give attendees the opportunity to use the application and test the different features themselves.
Each person had their own tablet accompanied by a detailed Vocalyx use document, and followed in real time on a projection the demonstrations of all possible manipulations of the application.
Teachers and parents were able to start creating their own keyboard and adjust the parameters of voice, key size, gestures on the screen of the tablet and other features to adapt the tool to its future user(s). They were very satisfied with the ease of Vocalyx : According to them, the application is very simple to use as much for the caregivers who customize the tool, as for autistic children.
Here are some testimonials from some of the people who attended the training. What did you like about Vocalyx?
