About us | CommunicoTool

Created in late 2012 by Frédéric Guibet, CommunicoTool is a French startup specialized in communication applications, originally under the CTEXDEV masthead. Frédéric, who has an autistic daughter, quickly realized that the tablet was to his child what a wheelchair is to someone affected by motor disabilities. He decided to create communication apps for tablets aimed at people, like his daughter, who faced challenges from their speech impediments.

In CommunicoTool’s case, the app can use built-in voices that come with the app, or recorded voices such as that of a child’s parent.”

“As a parent of two girls with autism, I know how important structure and consistency is. There are plenty of rewarding benefits for both the child and parent when everyone is working toward a common goal. The key is finding ways to accommodate your lifestyle, as well as your children. So this is why we chose CommunicoTool 2.”
