Empower Your Child
with Communication

Empower your child with speech and language using Audio/Visual Cues. Repetition makes your Child gradually understand and appreciate the importance and power of language – building independence.

Develop and reinforce communication

Lil Requester(TM) was founded by parents and created for parents to help kids with communication difficulties express themselves and their needs effectively. In doing so, Lil Requester(TM) also helps further develop and reinforce communication through visuals and audio cues, which is a critical foundation for many developmental skills in life.

The importance of communication cannot be overemphasized and every child has a right to communicate their needs. However, communication requires an avenue to express oneself. When kids do not have a consistent means to express their wants and needs, make decisions, or communicate choices, it may result in frustration, tantrums and even isolation. Overall, these communication difficulties can negatively affect their quality of life.

For many children, one of the first stages of communication is requesting. Requesting favorite toys, food, and activities is highly motivating. The Lil Requester app helps develop a child’s ability to gradually request more independently, strengthening their use of language through imitation and repetition.

Lil Requester is an AAC app (provide link here to a blog article: “What is AAC?”) that provides users with customizable pages of symbols that upon touching will speak the word, telling others what they want.

Get started today! Customize the activities, people and places to your child’s needs, wants and likes. Reduce your child’s frustration and take the guesswork out of knowing what he or she wants. Open the door to clear communication for your child with Lil Requester.

Create and Customize Audio & Visual Requests

Easily create audio visual requests based on your child’s routine. Our integration with stock photos allows you to set up familiar requests in a matter of seconds. Caregivers have the ability to select from hundreds of stock photos or upload their own photo to represent a request. Lil Requester offers the flexibility of using your own voice or our automated multilingual text to speech technology to speak the words when your child presses a pictured icon.

Intelligent functional use

Lil requester prevents non-functional use by auto locking when unproductive repetition (often called stimming) is detected, requiring adult action. You can also easily activate and lock child requesting workspace, temporarily disabling access to other features and apps on your device. That makes for a more productive use of our platform.

Reports to track your child's progress

Securely Share Data

Easily and securely share your child’s data, including personalized requesting boards and reports on progress, with therapists, teachers or family via text or email. Consistency is key to developing your child’s communication skills! By utilizing our sharing feature, your child has access to communication everywhere, all the time.

Manage multiple kids

Adapts as language skills grow

We know every child is different. Lil Requester can be easily customized to accommodate a child’s specific language level and grow with his or her skills. During your first use, answer a few quick questions in an initial assessment and the app will recommend Kid Level 1 or 2. Level 1 allows a child to request using 1 step, simply by selecting an icon that represents a desired activity (such as, “I want to play”). Level 2 offers sub activities under a main activity. A child completes a 2-step action of selecting a a main activity (such as, “I want to play”), and a more specific request within that activity (for example, “blocks” or “ball”). Start a child at either level, and change it at any time.”

Picture representations and audio feedback make it easy for individuals to understand how to use Lil Requester to express themselves to others. Lil Requester can be accessed by users of a variety of ages (12 months-old and up) and with a range of disorders, including Expressive Language Delay, Apraxia, Autism, Down Syndrome, and others. The colors used within the application are specifically designed to improve a child’s visual attention and accommodate individuals with visual challenges.

Practical

Our founders are parents of a child with a speech delay, just like many of you who understand first hand the importance of accessibility. Let’s face it. Life as a parent can be busy and overwhelming. Using a communication app that is complicated, time consuming to set up, and requires assistance from a professional just isn’t practical. Studies show that many communication partners lack the necessary skills for supporting a child’s use of AAC successfully during daily interactions. But not with Lil Requester. It stands apart from other AAC apps because of its simplicity, ease of use, and practicality.
