DynaVox® Mayer-Johnson Introduces PCS™ Apps And Boardmaker Activities

PITTSBURGH, Sept. 7, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- DynaVox Mayer-Johnson, the leading provider of speech generating devices and special education classroom software, announces the introduction of PCS Apps and Boardmaker Activities.  PCS Apps mark the company's first foray into the popular app market.  Boardmaker Activities are the newest additions to the Boardmaker Software Family.  Both products provide educators and speech-language pathologists with time- and money-saving tools that support learning for all students, while offering parents a cost-effective way to support and continue their child's learning when school is not in session – strengthening the school- and therapy-to-home link.

"The introductions of PCS Apps and Boardmaker Activities are very significant for both our company and the education community," said Michelle Heying, DynaVox Mayer-Johnson president and COO. "PCS Apps mark our initial entry into the dynamic app market and make it easy for educators, speech-language pathologists and parents to deliver educational content and enable learning on mobile devices virtually anywhere!

"The new Boardmaker Activities are also very exciting!  As the first Boardmaker products that do not require Boardmaker authoring software to run, Boardmaker Activities offer convenient, ready-made content that educators, speech-language pathologists and parents can use to strengthen the school- and therapy- to-home link."

Featuring the company's popular Picture Communication Symbols (PCS), PCS Apps help children Pre-K to Grade 3, and those with autism and special needs, develop vocabulary, language, articulation, cognitive and listening skills. Four categories – Flash Cards, Word Scramble, Match & Memory and Bingo – of PCS Apps are currently available free-of-charge at Apple's App Store, with additional content available for each PCS App for a nominal charge.

Boardmaker Activities provide more than 50 activities centered around eight Boardmaker Activity Series, including Beginning Board Games, Match & Memory, Word Wonder, Reading Corner, Quiz Show, Virtual Field Trip, Early Literacy and Curriculum Companions.
