iDevices, applications - a great leap forward

Aileen Ryan from Hands Can Talk is very excited about the potential of the Apple iPad to improve on the already impressive performance of the iTouch as a communication device that can change the lives of people with disabilities who have difficulty making themselves understood with speech or sign. Her thoughts, focussing on Proloquo2Go are in this recent blog post.

The Toronto Globe and Mail reports similar thoughts from teachers and parents of children with special needs.
Proloquo2Go for the iPad

And this blog lists many applications that are either low cost or free that people with disabilities have found useful.

Scroll down to Saturday 5th June on this web page for information about a parent forum on using Proloquo2Go with people with Down syndrome, to be held by Down Syndrome NSW.
