Publication Date: Summer 2006
Article discusses the Prentke Romich Company’s “40 for 40” program, as the company has marked its 40th anniversary by donating 40 speech output devices to people who lack funding options. One winner was a student with communication disabilities in the Brandywine School District in Wilmington, Delaware. The study was chosen to receive a SpringBoard Plus, which is a direct selection communicator created for people with speech or communication disabilities. The device contains pre-stored vocabulary, while it focuses on key words that are frequently utilized in speech. The student's journey from Kenya from the United States and his educational experiences are discussed.
