Science and Computers Helping Kids Facing Big Challenges

An example of a local impact from big science and computers. Due to birth problems with a bleeding brain and apnea, seven year old Selena Schuster faces big challenges in speaking, as described in the Orland Prairie. But, now she’s getting a a "new voice" – and better speech skills – using an Ipad and a special speech program on the tablet. The overall program is described here at Apraxia-KIDS.

Results? According to her Mom, they are seeing real progress after she received the device in January. She has advanced to 3 and 4 word sentences instead of 2 words. And it’s helping her feel better about trying to speak, and being more outward.

Investing in science – it matters, globally and locally.
