One of the more interesting apps to be developed in Ireland is the Grace App, which has been developed to assist the development of independent communication in autistic children. Here’s a recent interview that I conducted with the founder of the Grace App, Lisa Domican.

As Niall mentioned, this is indeed the best about the technology today - helping people do something they have never done before.

This is truly an inspiring, amazing story. Thank you!

Hi Helen,

What a great story on so many levels, both on a personal level but also in business.

Deciding not to go freemium was/is a great move as it highlights the value of the product. And the awards confirm this.

Thanks Ivan, I agree. The product is worth paying for, and in-app advertising would be inappropriate for the users. Interesting also how the app turns an iPod into a travel version of the iPad for days out.

As you say, a great story on many levels.

Hi Helen, What an Inspiring story and interview with Lisa. "She has learned to talk independently as a result of using Grace App consistently and after 11 years I got to hear my daughter call me “Mummy.”" This is what's beautiful about technology and Lisa is the type of leader, Ireland's needs right now, great piece!
