LovethatMax is a great blog from a parent’s perspective. Here is a link to aÂ great post on making the decision to try an augmentative communication device and ending up with the iPad and Proloquo2Go. Definitely worth reading.
“We jumped on theÂ iPad and the Proloquo2Go app. They’ve been amazing; … Oh, and Max’s speech? It is coming along. He’s saying more words all the time and stringing ones together to form sentences, and even though they’re not that clear he’s trying. A couple of months ago, for the first time ever, I heard him lying in bed at night, babbling.”
