Meet Emily: Using ProxTalker AAC to Teach/Learn Communication
When we first met Emily, she was being taught to use switches to communicate mostly during her snack times. Emily didn't seem to have a meaningful connection with communication to others, but we knew she had a lot to tell us. We chose the ProxTalker because we were able to make three-dimensional tags that had voice output. This really helps make language come to life for Emily. We would rotate the tags out and bring in new choices every 4-5 trials, so that she could learn more tags. Emily is happy when she has her time throughout the day to use her device. Communication is becoming meaningful for her.
