Michael is a 7-year-old who has autism. He is also nonverbal, which is due to his autism. Even though Michael cannot speak, he can still communicate through special software. The software, called Proloquo2Go, allows Michael to communicate through the use of symbols. This program can be downloaded onto an Apple product.
Michael’s family wanted to purchase Proloquo2Go along with an iPod touch and case, but their insurance wouldn’t cover the total cost of these items. HCCI purchased the items and now Michael can have his own voice.
If you want to help kids like Michael, consider volunteering your time to HCCI.
