Lindley is a 5 year old child with Down Syndrome. He is non-verbal and did not have a way to communicate his basic wants and needs to his family. With the help of the 7-level communicator augmentation and alternative communication device he uses), Lindley is given choice of things he needs or wants with pictures and verbal output. He can then make a choice of what he wants. This has made it much easier for him to communicate with his family. Also, Lindley had begun to vocalize more as a result of the verbal output of the device. This is significant, because hopefully over time, Lindley will be able to not only use his device, but also use the words he’s learned from the device to help him communicate better.
