Following her stroke, Aroob has significant word-finding difficulties which mean that she frequently can’t think of the right word she needs at the right time. This short video shows Aroob in her mainstream school using a specialised communication app on an iPod Touch to visually search for the word she needs. This can then be spoken by the iPod, or Aroob can often say the word when she sees the symbol. Aroob and her peers think that having the iPod is cool – it’s been a great boost to her self-esteem and confidence.
