    Jasmine was referred to Ability KC for the Adaptive Computer and Communication Technology (ACCT) program because of a speech impairment after surviving a stroke as a child.

    The therapists at Ability KC identified TouchChat and Voice Chat as the best tools for Jasmine to communicate independently. As a result Jasmine became more confident in expressing herself.
