Why a Little Girl with Apraxia Loves Her TapToTalk

One of our users sent this story for us to share with all of you. It sure made us all smile:
TapToTalk has been great for a little girl in my class who has severe apraxia. She is very smart but the words just can't come out.
We got the TapToTalk set up and she carried it around very proudly. With no prompting, she took the TapToTalk over to an adult in the room carrying the valentine heart she just cut and pasted and colored, and she went through the pictures on the TapToTalk and selected all the things she used for the heart she made. The scissors the glue and yes the marker, but not any marker; she tapped the picture of the marker and eight colors came up and she picked the blue one. And guess what? She did use a blue marker. She was so proud to share.
She loves the TapToTalk so much that she even took it with her in the bathroom! We had to explain that it would be safer in her cubby.
