This video shows (a simplified version) of my daughter's progression towards communication. Answers to FAQ: The first app that you see is called Proloquo2Go, running on an iPad in the Otterbox Defender case. The communication boards and picture cards for the Word Book were created using BoardMaker software. The final app that you see, the one that we still currently use, is called Speak for Yourself and is running on an iPad in the AMDi iAdapter case (later footage includes the plastic keyguard that helps her not hit other buttons accidentally).

Our whole story doesn't fit in a 10 minute video, we also used sign language, labeled household objects with pictures, used a modified glove before we had a keyguard, and studied the work of many experts in the field of AAC (augmentative and alternative communication) as we went.

We are still a work in progress.

If you are a parent who is trying to figure out how to start the AAC process with your child, check out this link: http://niederfamily.blogspot.com/2013...
