New year, new accessible app

You got that right – after months of research, prototyping and testing we are all set to launch MOMO Express.

MOMO Express is a delightful, accessible and co-designed app for children and young people with learning disabilities or younger children to co-use with a trusted worker.

It’s a simple to use app, which asks the young person to complete sentences about themselves. Using minimal text and expressive pictures it helps them communicate their preferences in a range of situations. The app uses ‘topics’ that can be used to inform a range of health, education and social care plans – including EHC assessments.

To help explain the app content, we commissioned established illustrator Tim Bradford. Check out some of the illustrations below:

MOMO Express has been created with the support of young people and workers in Cornwall, South Tyneside, Havering and Buckinghamshire and launches in early January 2017 (thank you everyone!)
