Alexandra is my 3 year old daughter with Rett Syndrome. Rett Syndrome is a neurodevelopmental condition which almost exclusively affects girls and has a profound effect on their ability to communicate. Scientists and therapists believe that children with Rett's have underestimated processing and cognitive abilities. This technology would therefore be of great help in her rehabilitation and education.
Alexandra would be starting school next year. She is a very curious and bright girl. She is very keen to learn and explore her surroundings. My family would like to encourage and support her education through the use of this Assistive Augmentative Speech Technology.
