What makes Know Me unique?

Inclusiveness

We look for solutions that can apply to people with communication difficulties no matter what the reasons for those difficulties might be. We also try to make our tools fit any age group or ability level. As a result, seniors with dementia and preschoolers with autism are both likely candidates for our apps.

The person with a communication disability possesses and presents their own information

People with communication difficulties often rely on others to tell their stories. In meeting people, they may even be referred to in the third person. With Know Me, users carry and share their own information. Their profile reveals how to communicate with them directly.

Encourages Collaboration

Team Talk is a chat room where your team can work together to discuss problems and opportunities, interpret your language and help develop your profile. It documents how problems were solved in the past. Finally, it is a great place for new team members to go to be trained for his or her new role.

Contributes to independence

Know Me promotes independence by communicating things like the person’s abilities, needed adaptations, goals and motivation. Their profile can include job aids, routines, schedules, equipment management...anything that contributes to their independence.

Gives guardians and caregivers peace of mind

With Know Me, anyone can know and provide support for your child, parent, relative, friend, student, patient, or other loved one with communication disabilities when you are not around.
