Yesterday I picked up my grandson, Michael, at his Middle School where he is in 8th grade. Michael has autism, is bright but mostly non-verbal. This week his ASD( Autism Spectrum Disorders) team started using My Talk to help him put photos and words together to describe his activities in school. His COTA (Certified Occupational Therapy Assistant) said he had his best OT day ever!! Last night he was asking for his iPad so he is getting excited about using his iPad and hopefully will be replaying those My Talk cells. Michael learns best by repetition and My Talk enables him to replay as many times as he wants. His school team and his family team are very excited about the opportunities being opened up by My Talk. Now we just have to become proficient in all the aspects of My Talk that will benefit him. Thank you to the My Talk team for creating this wonderful application. I will update again soon.
