Great basic communication device

This is a great communication device for the iPad for basic communication. You can use a switch with it so students/children that can physically not touch an iPad or use a more elaborate system, can use this with a switch and select what they want or answer a question.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
