Project Focus: Speech! At their Fingertips!
Children suffering from Autism spectrum disorders, with varying levels of function are students at Sulam’s communications kindergartens. Unfortunately, they are completely unable to communicate with those around them. In short, they are outcasts, locked in their speechless world.
An amazing new tool, which is in use worldwide, is beginning to open the door to communication for these children. I Pads. They are small enough to be used outside, can be programmed with the latest communications apps, and not least, the children love to use them. We have seen amazing results with I Pad use by our autistic children. From single words, they can progress to sentences, and slowly to normal speech.
Sulam needs to purchase as many I-pads as we can so that we can give every child the key to unlock the prison doors.
