Here’s how Lyra works

Lyra is developed by an expert team of designers, engineers, speech therapists, teachers and parents using leading evidence-based methods to help children with autism speak.

Lyra is easy to learn and understand for children, parents and professionals. We use photography for objects and people to support concrete thinkers while using familiar emoji for actions and feelings.

Each word is represented by a card containing text and an image. Each card can appear in multiple collections. On the home screen, each collection is shown in a row with a title, recently used cards, and a link to open that collection.

Designed with autism in mind

While others offer an overwhelming amount of functionality, Lyra is specifically designed for children on the autism spectrum who struggle with verbal communication. It’s easy to use, focused and distraction free. What’s more, Lyra is designed around the needs of the child, their parents, teachers and therapist, ensuring maxium effectiveness of therapy and success.
