I am a techie. I love electronics and can’t remember what it was like before my iPhone. Ok, I do remember having a pager! I read this article and have more hope now, then I did three years ago when my children were first diagnosed. With all the advancement in technology I believe we have made these advances not to just make our lives simpler but to help those we need it.

Diva did not talk until age 2. Now, at home, we can’t stop her. She may not always be understandable, but she talks and communicates. And I can’t help but wonder if we were able to have access to a iPad/iPod/iPhone if we have been able to speed up her progress by the help of apps to widen the bridge of communication. Here’s hope to the future and the progress I hope we can make for our children and our children’s children.
