Communication app for James who really wants to talk!

Posted May 11, 2017
When James was placed into foster care 4 months ago, he had no words. He could only communicate with grunts and gestures. Now, James is attempting to talk all day long and is making great progress but he still has a long way to go to catch up to his peers. James participates in speech therapy and his foster mom works with him every day. The speech therapist has recommended a communication device to help James get where he needs to be.

Learn More About James

James is 5 years old and lives in Simla, CO

Our sweet James had no language at all when he came into care 4 months ago. He communicated with grunts and gestures. We know that this lack of language is due to severe neglect. The great news is that after only 4 months, this little boy is now attempting to talk ALL DAY LONG! Many of his words can be understood, but most require interpretation by his foster mom. James is smart and understands everything- he just needs help closing the gap on his expressive language. Despite his communication difficulties, James is doing great socially in his preschool class. He is loved by everyone who meets him!
