Better Speech &
Hearing Month

What’s happening during Better Speech and Hearing month at ATLAS?
An Innovative Way to Use Technology to Enhance Communication Here at Atlas we have students learning to communicate using all different modalities. We look to our students and their interests to best address developing speech and language skills. One of our students uses the program Touch Chat on his iPad as his Augmentative and Assistive Technology Device. The program’s typical output is a computerized voice. While the student was making progress with his device we wanted to personalize it further to increase his progress. This particular student loves music, and his music therapist’s voice. We noticed that when the music therapist sang certain phrases this student would frequently repeat the phrase. With this in mind the SLP and Music Therapist collaborated, and they recorded the Music Therapist’s voice as the output for the device. Upon hearing the new voice the student immediately smiled each time he used it to speak, became more focused, and expressed more interest.
