Extract:

Clearly, AT can help individuals with DD and autism communicate more effectively and increase their level of independence and social integration experiences. Increased communication gives them greater freedom to control their environments. AT devices which allow individuals with DD and autism to communicate more effectively include: a communication board (a device with pictures and words that can be carried around), a speech talker, and computer-assisted communication gadgets. These devices are popular with children and adults with DD and autism because these individuals will frequently tolerate one-on-one instruction via a computer but they will not engage in a human one-on-one interaction (Adams, 1997).
