I am an elementary school SDC teacher. The Speech/Language specialist and I collaborate to develop appropriate communication activities. We have found My Talk to be a very useful tool for our students. It is easy to use My Talk to develop communication opportunities "on the fly" rather than developing activities, printing overlays, and then recording the corresponding voice output. We use My Talk, for example, to allow students to answer content questions about stories, make announcements to other classes while delivering mail or collecting the attendance, tell jokes to the secretary, and turn in the lunch count. We hope to put together a school-wide communication program using the iPad and iPods based on our success with My Talk and to apply for grants to purchase iPads for the other six SDC classes at our school. -- Barbara
