Compartmentalizing Communication Doesn’t Work

I work with parents who complain that the school isn't doing enough to support their child's communication growth.  Parents cite bars that are set too low,…

IT Stories: SFCD's Assistive Technology Lab

IT Stories: SFCD's Assistive Technology Lab | AAC: Augmentative and Alternative Communication | Scoop.it
By Marina Candela

“I’ve been doing this for a long time, but this is the first time I’m
seeing mainstream technology have real applications for people with
disabilities,” Karen of SFCD explains. She proceeds to show me how she is
able to control just about everything in the room, from the fan to the
lights, with her voice or the iPad she holds in her hand. The iPad is
running several communication applications that allow her to type out
simple sentences telling the room what to do. Karen illustrates this by
tapping a few buttons on her iPad, causing it to say, “Amazon, turn on the
fan.” Sure enough, the fan across the room turns on with a pleasing whir.
This is what assistive technology is all about, and it’s pretty incredible.
