Children with Dravet syndrome have severe epileptic seizures that begin in infancy and are resistant to treatment. They often exhibit characteristics of children on the autism spectrum, including developmental delays. Expressive language problems problems are common.
Children with Dravet syndrome have the same need (and right) to communicate as do all other kids. We have heard from many parents of children with Dravet syndrome that they have had great success using TapToTalk as their AAC solution. Most tell us TapToTalk was recommended by other parents. TapToTalk provides portable, customizable, socially acceptable and affordable AAC for children with expressive language problems. We are proud to be able to help them help their kids communicate.
