Dad Develops Technology To Help His Autistic Son Communicate
Speaks4Me is an electronic device that helps kids suffering from learning and speaking difficulties to communicate.
Stephen Lodge of the UK has developed a method to help his eleven-year-old autistic son communicate. The system, called Speaks4Me, uses the concept of dragging and dropping images from one area of the screen to another to form sentences and pressing a speech button to verbalize the user’s sentence. Lodge says that the system has enabled his son to create some very expressive sentences, adding that it doesn’t take more than half an hour to understand and use the system.
