The Personal Talker, a low-tech communication tool, is a great introduction to AAC.
How it works:
Record a message (up to ten seconds) and then push the large PLAY button to play back the message. A PCS™ or written word can be inserted into the adjoining frame.
A pen point is needed to record, eliminating accidental erasing. If pushing the PLAY button is too difficult, begin teaching single switch access by attaching a self-adhesive ""bumper"" (included) which can be activated with a single touch.
Measures 2.5"" x .5"" and weighs 1.6 oz. Includes four button batteries.
