Summary

Logan has autism and cannot talk yet. Whilst he is a good PECS user, his dad Glen wanted him to have verbal communication. So Glen and his friend Kevin, both engineers, set about designing a device that would let him build on his PECS and easily transfer to verbal output. “After one minute with the ProxTalker, Logan requested his favourite toy, a letter puzzle, and now he orders his own Macdonalds” reports Glen.

The Logan ProxTalker is a dedicated device built for the hard handling it will receive from its owner. Originally designed for autism, it is already being seen by professionals in the US and UK as a tool for a diverse range of children and adults. Built by a parent who understands the demands of time with an autisitc son, this is simply the easiest device to set up and use. Glen will share his journey and ambitions.
