Elysha as many of you know has Down syndrome and is Hearing Impaired. Elysha uses a combination of sign language (is fluent) voice and a program called Proloquo4Text. Her story has been featured over at AssistiveWare Website. For those of you interested please check it out:
AssistiveWare have made communication available for so many people and over the years I have worked for and enjoyed the company of the staff who are scattered all over the world. With the use of a voice output program used on iPhone, iPad or iPod people from all walks of life are able to tell others what they want, answer questions, make conversation and much much more.
Young Woman with communication device finds her voice - this particular story is about Elysha but there are many other stories there to tell you about Proloquo2Go and Prolouo4Text and how it works for them.
One of my favourite photos of Elysha dancing with her dad at my sons wedding.
My girls and the love they share.

Elysha loves cooking (nearly as much as eating)
Hope you enjoy this little piece of our lives.
