What does your voice mean to you?
You’ve probably never thought about it. Most people haven’t. But stop for a moment now and think about it or rather think about not having a voice. How do you tell someone what you want or need? How do you tell someone you’re hurt or sick? How do you control your world and what happens to you? How do you tell someone you love them?
For many people with developmental disabilities who are not able to communicate verbally they face these questions everyday. Far too often people aren’t able to communicate these simple basic things. Fortunately, because of technology people are being able to communicate through the use of simple devices like the iPad and iPod's with communication applications. Progressive Employment is seeking monetary or product donations of Apple iPad's for our clients. Please partner with us in giving individuals access to communication, literacy and educational technology to use in their everyday lives. $500 could literally give someone a voice!
