Has Anyone Tried The Dynavox? Is It Promising?

Has Anyone Tried The Dynavox? Is It Promising?

We tried it but after having her own ipad my daughter was thoroughly unimpressed by the big clunky machine so in the end we go the LAMP program on an ipad mini and we have seen some really interesting success. a lot of new vocab words and some slightly new ways of communicating. Because we were borrowing it through a university program we have not yet received the full training in it, but should be getting that when in the next month or so. I am encouraged and hopeful.

My sons speech therapist referred the Dynavox & we use it for 30days. My son has medicaid & if he qualifies to keep it they will pay for it. His speech therapist has heard great things about it. My son did good with it, repeated every word from it but it is big and heavy & the bottom gets hot if its on his lap I have to put a cover under it. You can set it up to do & say just about anything. My son also has an iPad & he uses it too, it's alot easier to carry.

For the I pad ProloQuo 2go is one of the apps you can download about
$190. There are a few more but this one is a pretty good app.
We use it at home when our Dynavox breaks down... Which happens more than it should. Dynvx is a great device which my son has used for 5 yrs now. School bought it for him so they are using it at school as well. Problem is it's size and weight plus it breaks down. The iPad and other apple devices have better durability when you use otter box type of protective cover.
Once you buy the proloQuo you can downloaded on any of your other apple devices including iPhone
