So I'm trying something new with this blog post. If you are reading it, then you are also reading the presentation I am giving in my grad class. Using our own personal website was one of the options for presentation mode and I thought, hmm, that could be interesting! Feel free to chime in anything you'd like to the comments below. I will be delivering my presentation sometime after 4pm on Tuesday July 2nd and it would be fun to have some comments to review with the group too. Especially if you have ever used this device or anything similiar to it.
Now, onto the meat and potatoes..
I chose to do an evaluation on The Super Talker Progressive Communicator. Since I work with students with many communication needs I was more drawn to a communication device for my project.
The Super Talker Progressive Communicator is a communication device that stores pre-recorded expressions or words, which are then activated by pushing down on a picture. The device allows you to have one, two, four, or eight pictures displayed at a time. The Super Talker is manufactured by AbleNet and can be purchased on their website, or many others, such as Mayer-Johnson. When you purchase the Super Talker you receive the communication device itself and the four plastic screen overlays; the overlays store easily in the back of the device so they are not lost. Super Talker does not come with the images to place under the overlays. You have to create those yourself.
