Hi. My name is Lisa. I have an 8 year old son with autism. He has also been diagnosed with a moderate intellectual disability, hydrocephalus and mild cerebral palsy. He is non-verbal and on developmental scales/tests functions no higher than a 2 year old, and that is in the area of gross motor. I was asked to write about his experience with use of a speech generating device and my experience as his mom in getting him what he needed. I’m writing as a mom. I am not a Speech Language Pathologist, but feel our experience can be helpful to others or at least encourage them to think about use of a speech generating device for their child.
