New Voices

Thanks to the latest digital technology in the form of the Apple iPad tablet computer, children who are non-verbal are learning to “speak” for the first time and communicate with family, friends, and teachers. The iPad's unique size and portability makes it a good fit for children with disabilities. The iPads come with comprehensive language software and numerous visual and audio applications, or “apps.”

The iPad is available for those who qualify through an Assistive Technology grant from Ability Connection Oklahoma, made possible by the generous support of the Circle K Corporation and their Oklahoma stores.
