Company Overview

DynaVox Mayer-Johnson is the leading provider of speech generating devices and symbol-adapted special education software used to assist individuals in overcoming their speech, language and learning challenges. These solutions are designed to help individuals who have complex communication and learning needs participate in the home, classroom and community.

Our line of speech generating devices gives a voice to people who are unable to speak as a result of severe cognitive and physical limitations due to amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS or Lou Gehrig's Disease), stroke, traumatic brain injury, cerebral palsy, autism, intellectual disabilities, and other conditions.

Our Boardmaker line of special education software is used as a publishing and editing tool to create interactive, symbol-based educational activities and materials for special education students. It is also used to adapt text-based materials to symbol-based materials for students with limited reading skills. Our proprietary Picture Communication Symbols (PCS®) are used in both our Boardmaker software line and our DynaVox line of speech generating devices.

Our mission is to enable our customers to realize their full communication and education potential by developing industry-leading devices, software and content and by providing the services to support them. We assist individuals, families, and professionals with an extensive field support organization, as well as centralized technical and reimbursement support.
