How do I start using CoughDrop for AAC?

Getting Started Tool

CoughDrop is designed to be a user-friendly augmentative and alternative communication app.  When you first create an account you will be prompted to progress through the CoughDrop Getting Started Wizard which will help you adjust settings and preferences in your account to fit your needs.  The Getting Started Wizard will also give you some brief instructions on how CoughDrop works and what you can do to get to know the program.

You can reach the Getting Started Tool at any time through this link or by navigating to your CoughDrop dashboard and hitting "extras" under the "action" menu.

You can go through the getting started tutorial for your own account or choose to get started with the account of someone you supervise.

If you are a CoughDrop organization manager, you can use the getting started tutorial on behalf of anyone within your organization.
