Young boy uses Proloquo2Go to communicate

At 20 weeks pregnant, Kayla Knight found out her soon-to-be first born would face down syndrome, a heart defect and Duodenal Atresia. When Kayson was old enough to start speaking but dind't say a word, Kayla knew he needed help.

At The Children's Center for Communication and Development on The University of Southern Mississippi's Hattiesburg campus, a school for children with special needs, they introduced the family to Proloquo2Go.

"The best part is he can generate a message that is autonomous to him. He can make a decision on exactly what he wants and put a sentence together that would be something his friend can say also at the four-year-old level," Myers, one of Kayson's first speech-language pathologists.
