PROLOQUO2GO.pngA relative sent me this link to the Wireless Zone site that promotes (and advertises) the use of tablets and smartphones for people with special needs.  For example, the site notes how the use of the Proloquo2Go app (see picture above) on tablets can make it easier for people who are autistic  to communicate to others & express themselves more.  (It's not cheap though; asking price is around $220.)

The site goes into more detail about installing mobile accessability to smartphones to enable apps like Nuance's Vocalizer.  But it's main point -that it is possible for people with autism or other disabilities to communicate with others through developing technology- is the takeaway for me.
