Citra: A New Communication App

January 2014 — The Wells Foundation in partnership with Ohio State University and Columbus Speech and Hearing Center released a new communication app for children and adults with language impairments.  Based on a successful prototype using a common, standard database of picture elements, Citra networks and shares communication boards, schedule maker, and notes between multiple people providing services to the same child. Therapist, special needs teachers and parents can access the same lesson plans from whatever computer or tablet they use, while a notes log provides constant communications between all caregivers supporting the child. Citra is currently available on Google Play and the App Store.

Citra was made possible, in part, by the Wireless RERC’s App Factory and the National Institute on Disability and Rehabilitation Research (NIDRR).
