"Our son struggles with communicating his needs a great deal. He was becoming more angry and unhappy. Since receiving this iPad he has been much calmer and is showing progress. We have downloaded Tobiidynavox app, and are hoping this is the right match for him. He lit up when he first saw the app. He understood we are really trying to help him. Thank you so much for this device. It is very meaningful."
"This program has helped improve my life by helping me stay connected with my peers and twin brother. I feel I have more independence and can meet with my clinician virtually. Since COVID, I have had to stay inside when I used to be out in the community during my free time. Having an iPad has helped keep me busy when I am bored."
"The iPad was necessary technology needed in order to attend all psychotherapy appointments which became virtual during the pandemic. It helps me access email to communicate and socialize. It allows me to access YouTube for recreation and my music for helping me with calming. It is used all the time and has helped me in so many ways. I am very grateful."
