Autism Speech DiegoSays is an app that visually helps your kids to form phrases: action + object
This app is really simple: it contains three buttons at the top that represent three actions (I want, I am, I am going). The kid just has to tap one of them and the tap any object below to form a sentence. For example: "I want food", "I am going home". Of course, all the actions and objects contains both, the written word and a thumbnail that describes what it is.
When the kid tap both actions or objects, Speech-to-text engine (called Diego), says the word. When linking action + object, Diego will say the full sentence. Thanks to this app, you children will learn how to make sense sentences, to read and to pronounce properly.
We've only noticed a few catches: interface should be enhanced, it needs more objects and the free version only allows you to form phrases with the action "I want". Despite of this, useful app.
How it works:
The children must push in the action button first (Ej: I want) and after in one of the possible options (Ej. food)
Remember that the persistence is you’re best allied. You must try that your son uses this tool whenever he needs to communicate. The practice will make the rest.
If you are following a diet free of gluten nd casein, then the bread and other elements, present in the application, are versions free of gluten and casein such as rice bread.
The DiegoSaysPro version has many other communicative elements.

I tried it out first just to see how it work. Lucky I did,every 3rd push of a sign came up with a link to the "pro" £6 version.
Its compatable with or son's go talk that he uses at school and home, he's 13 and completely non verbal so this helps give him a voice thank you so so much...you have no idea :-)
This is a good starting point. At least it is something, but this app still needs some work. Problems: 1) Only seems to work on smartphones (i.e small screens), and does not re-size the icons or words correctly on tablets (tested on Vizio VTAB
Great concept but instantly crashes on my Asus Transforfer Prime ICS
