Our Occupational Therapists and Speech Pathologists provide different types of assistive technology to their clients. One specific assistive technology provided by Connect2Care’s speech pathologists is a high-tech device that allows people to communicate when they don’t have the option to communicate verbally.
This device allows people to communicate using their eyesight and slight body movements. Using this device can give people the ability to convey their thoughts and how they feel when they otherwise may not have been able to.
