“It gives me the feeling of love.”

"It gives me the feeling of love."

Although we struggle on a daily basis to facilitate good AT implementation with children who have significant communication challenges, the reality is that they are better served than their adult counterparts. Even the simplest communication supports are less available to people with AAC needs once they leave school, at least here in the US. This video shows the remarkable impact of mainstream technology, an mp3 player, on individuals with dementia. It made us wonder…how can we spread what we know about AAC and AT to individuals beyond the reach of the school system? Each one, teach one. We’d love to hear your thoughts, ideas, and experiences.
