Children at SERC (Special Education and Rehabilitation Centre for Disabled Children) have benefited from an iPad paid for by the Nepali Children’s Trust.
This was an initiative with our partners SERC and Trifc (the Robert Rose International Fund for Children).
Non-verbal children are able to communicate more easily by using an app installed on the iPad. This is particularly helpful when they are feeling frustrated by not being able to express themselves. There has also been the unexpected bonus that the children are trying to utter the words ‘spoken’ by the iPad.
Robert Rose of Trifc says: “We did a trial programme at SERC School in Kathmandu using an iPad and the Proloquo2Go app to see how successful it would be in helping non-verbal children communicate. Initial results were very promising!”
