by Uma Louise Roa, CEO/Co-founder of Pic-A-Talk
Pic-A-Talk started out as a school project where we were asked to come up with a solution to any pain or struggle we experience on a daily basis using technology. As someone who was content with her life, I was stumped. So I asked my mother for advice and she put me in the shoes of my little sister, Lea.

Pic-A-Talk is described as a mobile app for augmentative and alternative communication (AAC), which refers to communication methods that assist people with speech impairments. AAC devices help improve the quality of life for people with special needs that experience difficulties with their day-to-day communication.

Lea was diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder and speech apraxia at the age of 3, which explained her developmental delay in verbal communication. But she is more than her disabilities.
