Speaking for Autism

ACN1000-10-blackSometimes all it takes to get an Autistic child to come out of his shell is the right technology, and Prentke Romich’s Accent 1000 has a multi-faceted approach to these special needs students. Based on a Dell latitude 10 tablet, the system has Prentke’s Unity language software pre-installed, which allows children to do anything from communicate simple items to programmed phrases. In other words, it can speak for Autistic students when they can’t. The actual hardware is sealed in a protective case that includes a convenient handle; it weighs less than 3 pounds. It can be ordered in five colors and costs $7,295.
