Description

Join us for this one-day workshop to learn more about Proloquo2Go (version 5) – a robust, full-featured communication app that supports language development and can grow with the user. This workshop will provide an overview of the basic features and also provide information to help you customize the app for your student’s specific needs. Participants will explore and learn about the different levels of Crescendo, Proloquo2Go’s pre-programmed language system, and we will cover basic app functions such as adding a new user, creating new buttons and folders, the new search feature, and creating/managing back-up files. More advanced features that allow you to adjust the app’s appearance, access methods, speech, and navigation will also be covered.

Note: Participants are encouraged to bring their own iPad with Proloquo2Go version 5 installed. We will be using Proloquo2Go version 5 for the training. Although not ideal, iPads with Proloquo2Go version 4 installed can also be utilized during this training. Please be aware that Proloquo2Go 5 will only run on iPads that can be updated to the latest operating system (iOS 10.3). We will have some iPads available for use during the training on a first come, first served basis.
