A tablet for Jake who is learning to say his first words

Posted Jun 6, 2023
Jake is in speech and occupational therapy. He has been working very hard with his therapists to learn new things. His speech therapist recommended a tablet to help Jake communicate. It would also help him practice his speech in a fun way. He also would be able to watch it to relax when he is overstimulated. He loves watching cartoons.

Jake is 6 years old and lives in IL

Jake came into care very recently and his family is working to get him adjusted to all of the changes. He is on the autism spectrum and primarily non-verbal. He has recently started saying a few words and his speech therapist is hopeful his speech will be emerging. Jake loves his stuffed animals. When he is outside, he loves to swing and run around the yard. He is learning how to do basic things for himself such as dressing himself and feeding himself.
