A Message from the Director

At LATKids, we're convinced that the most difficult job in America is being the parent of a disabled child. That is why we do what we do. We want to help your family.

In the meantime, check out our site. Our latest creation is The Zone. This place in the blogosphere is set up for you. We hope children, their families and their schools will take advantage of this advancement in communication. We also want to foster relationships between schools in different geographic areas. This very cool tool will allow them to do just that as well as utilize some of the Assitive Technology that they use to do everything else. This adds to our growing list of useful tools to create meaningful activities that transcend the four walls around us. Let us know what you think.

Here's some of what we'll be doing in the next few months:

Feedback from our increasingly popular Aug Comm program, Speak for Yourself, has inspired the next generation in synthetic speech output offerings from LATKids. Be on the lookout for our literacy-based communication offering this autumn. We're really proud of what we're working on for you.

A Midsummer's Night Out is rapildy approaching and if you want to be a part of it, please, don't hesitate to contact us as slots are filling. You'll find more details in our news section above.

Please take a moment and subscribe to our web site, and we'll keep you informed of our events and developments.
