End users know what they want to say, but can’t find the words. From autism to Alzheimer’s to TBI to selective mutism, millions of English speakers act out in frustration at their inability to express feelings.
Communications deficits lead to Behavior Problems
End Users possess the cognitive understanding to ideate their feelings, but are unable to formulate those thoughts in complex ways. This inability to resolve emotions leads to inner turmoil and frequent destructive behavior. OiGO provides Emotional Tool Box of appropriate, customizable responses to stressors.
ACT focuses on the large and growing segment of adolescents to adults who suffer from neurologically-based speech impairments or other communication difficulties—as well as their friends, Parents and Loved Ones, and Specialists
An Easy-to-Use, Inconspicuous Speech Tool
OiGO App is the only feelings-based tool on the market that can help a user deal in productive ways with unique emotion-based stressors. Progressive prompting by the app guides a user stressed out by an undefinable anxiety toward an expression of feeling, a reason for that feeling, and an array of options for dealing with that feeling in a productive way.
Users don’t have to wait till their next therapy session to discuss what they did or did not do to deal with their behavior issue. With OiGO App, their therapist is with them at all times.
Downloadable to i-Phone or Android device, all parts of the team are able to make real-time suggestions for behavior options on behalf of their loved one and client.
Because of its structured approach to phrase generation, OiGO App is applicable as a therapeutic language learning tool in the realm of speech pathology. For students of low English language ability, OiGO App can function as a classroom learning tool English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) Educators.

Not Just English
Built for the future. Many communicative apps use an icon-based approach which slows usage and inhibits the user’s expressive ability. Even worse, iconography can vary by language and culture, generating misunderstanding, confusion, and even offense. In contrast, Bridges App uses a progressively-enhanced language-based interface that can be applied to many languages.
