Jasmine's Story


Assistive Technology

Jasmine was referred to Ability KC for the Adaptive Computer and Communication Technology (ACCT) program for a speech impairment acquired after surviving a stroke as a child.  Before receiving services at Ability KC Jasmine had struggled communicating with others her entire life and would often find herself sitting in class not speaking and sometimes not even presenting her work. The therapists at Ability KC helped identify TouchChat and Voice Chat as the best tools for Jasmine to communicate independently.   As a result Jasmine became more confident in expressing herself and began to actively participate in her college classes. By the end of the year she was on the President’s Honor Roll, Dean’s List and a member of the National Honor Society. Since graduating Jasmine has started her own graphic design business where she continues to use assistive technology to communicate with her clients.
