research shows that 1 in 88 children are identified with an autism spectrum disorder and 1 in 6 children in the U.S. had a developmental disability in 2006-2008, ranging from speech and language impairments to intellectual disabilities, cerebral palsy, and autism. The good news is modern technology is making a difference! Fay Bareham of Houston’s 11-year-old son is autistic and non-verbal. Her family discovered TapToTalk this past summer, and it has made all the difference for them.
I am so happy with all the advances that enable children to communicate, especially apps like TapToTalk. Sam, my youngest, was speech delayed and I wish we had something like this app when we needed it. He was always so frustrated and I think this would have made a world of difference for him. Hopefully other parents will be able to eliminate some of those frustrations. You can ustomize it and use it on phones and tablets. You can even use it on your Kindle Fire/Nook, PC, and Nintendo! Check it out!
