From the [Toronto] Globe and Mail:
Parents and educators of kids with developmental disabilities offer high praise for the new Apple iPad. They say it can serve as an assisted communication device, can help kids focus on routine tasks, and is a great help at easing student anxiety.
“It’s just a game changer,” says Samuel Sennott, co-creator of the popular Proloquo2Go software. “It’s â€¦ [a] portable, table-top solution for people with physical impairments, people with visual impairments.”
Sennott’s speech-generating software, currently ranked at number 34 in the United States among more than 185,000 available apps, is available in an iPad version.
