Heard this the other day on the radio. I am very excited to see the combination of technology and support for the IDD population. If you get a chance to watch the video, please do. Might even want to follow this company. Let me know what you all think about this new product.
A pioneer program in Maine is helping young children with special needs communicate using an iPad and a special app. A pilot program at Northeast Hearing and Speech has been using the iPad as a communication tool for pre-school children – and now, they have a grant to further study how effective it is. Rushi Patel has down syndrome, and is essentially nonverbal. He now uses Proloquo2Go on his iPad, which has given him a voice.
AssistiveWare’s CEO David was recently in Maine for a Proloquo2Go presentation day and was also interviewed by WGME 13 news. Watch the TV segment in Maine on Proloquo2Go here.
* We should add that the company, of course is AssistiveWare and the app is Proloquo2Go. And as always, everything we do at AssistiveWare is a team effort!”
