Summary There are currently many software products available to help developmentally disabled children learn and improve communication skills. Research uncovered two major issues with currently available software products: free software is generally of very low quality and high quality software is generally very expensive. This results in software that is too costly and not easily adaptable to the individual needs of the child. The inspiration of this project was to create a high-quality software solution for parents and teachers to use at home and in schools at little or no cost. To ensure that the quality and features desired by the stakeholders would be properly incorporated into the software product, a formal development process was created and followed. An Agile software development approach was utilized to define the software engineering framework. By following this structured Agile process, traceability, from requirements specification to code development to verification and validation, was maintained throughout the project lifecycle. The result was a high quality, well documented product that met the requirements of the stakeholders and can easily be modified by users who may wish to expand on the product.
