Thanks to generous grants and donations through PTA, the speech department at Washington Center has acquired many new voice output communication devices this year. These devices come in all shapes and sizes. 

As a result, students who don’t have the ability to speak now have a way to speak messages and communicate with others.

Some communication devices are small enough to be worn around the neck so that communication is always accessible. Students have fun talking to people in the community on field trips, playing with their classmates and participating actively during instructional time. Having a voice is empowering.
