I am posting a few photos of some things Wes and I have been working on for miss Abby. Wes is a techie, so when we got an ipad, he got to work making something for her to use. It is still a work in progress, but I think it will be a cool thing for her to use, especially when we are out. When she touches the picture, it says the appropriate comment. This screen is comments about her video. We also made a help screen. We have a lot of ideas of ways to use the ipad with Abby. The pictures have to be pretty big because her fine motor skills aren't great, but we are going to see what she can do with it. When Wes gets time to fine tune it, he'll make it available for anyone else who is interested in it. In the end, we want to be able to make it easy to swap symbols and record audio.
This is my much less techie version. Abby has been using this when we play in the water.
This is a very old communication device, but its about all we have that has more than a couple of choices. I am using it mostly to familiarize Abby with the symbols, but the surface isn't sensitive, so we have to usually help her push the symbol that she is looking at or attempting to touch.
