What is a speech generating device?
Individuals with autism, down syndrome, ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease), stroke, brain injury, Parkinson's, cerebral palsy, developmental delays, laryngectomy, apraxia of speech or other similar conditions are often unable to communicate effectively. A speech-generating device is a special piece of assistive technology that enables communication and personal expression. These devices range from simple to more complex. At Talk To Me Technologies, we work with state-of-the-art technology to be sure our clients have the widest range of options. Whether you need a speech-generating device that is small and portable or one that can be controlled using the eyes, we'll work together to find a perfect match for you. TTMT speech-generating devices are approved by Medicare, Medicaid and private insurance companies.

Will a speech generating device hinder my child's ability to develop natural speech?
No. Just the opposite. Research indicates that using a speech-generating device actually facilitates the production of natural speech and language development. In fact, numerous studies have found that the introduction of a speech-generating device frequently has a positive effect on speech; children who are given a speech-generating device often develop speech faster than they would have otherwise (Bodine & Beukelman, 1991; Van Tatenhove, 1987). In 2006, a study by Millar, Light & Schlosser examined the relationship between the use of a speech-generating device and speech development.
The overwhelming majority (89%) of the subjects showed improvements in speech production when using a speech-generating device.
