Alternative communications?

Jennifer Shaw Racz, the Malki Foundation's development specialist here in Jerusalem, writes:

This week we had the opportunity and pleasure to meet with Debbie Ben-Tal to discuss the possibility of collaborating with the Karten Network to bring specific Augmentative and Alternative Communications (AAC) devices to Israel.

These are devices that help children and adults with speech issues communicate with the world around them.

Examples include eye-activated boards or iPads/tablets. 

The Karten Network is a charity based in the UK which supports organizations working with people with disabilities, specifically using technology. 

It was a very informative meeting and we were very impressed by Debbie's commitment to helping adults and children communicate with the world around them in addition to her time-management skills! 

Thank you Debbie and the Karten Network for your insights into speech therapy and AAC in Israel.
