Assistive Technology for Speech Therapy at Barrett

At Barrett, we meet with many children who are working hard to express themselves. A lot of our friends use words, but many are non-verbal.   We have found assistive technology such as Boardmaker®and Proloquo2Go™ to be extremely effective tools to increase communication for wide ranges of helpful things such as: foods they want to eat, places they want to go and a better understanding for needs of day to day living.

I have had the personal joy of watching children evolve from a place of frustration to the happy realization that what they wanted to share had finally been heard.

If someone in your household, or your life, struggles with non-verbal communication; I encourage you to contact us for a speech assessment.  There are many strategies and tools that can be introduced to help!
