MyChoicePad | Be heard. Be cool. Be you. | Digital Technology and Inclusion | Scoop.it
Tee Neal's insight:


  Added 20/06/14


"MyChoicePad uses Makaton, a language programme that reinforces language with symbols and signs. This means that instead of just listening to a spoken word, a person can see it, hear it and sign it. By reinforcing the language, MyChoicePad makes communication easier to understand and therefore easier to learn.


I've added it for information and the case study videos. However at 129.99  It's  effective use would  have to be carefully thought out.
