John, 22, used a tablet at school for years and recently got his own with help from CAU. “There is no doubt that early on, hearing the device speak helped him pronounce and understand the words better,” said John’s mom, Lee.

Kristie, 26, also recently purchased a tablet and uses the First Then mobile application to structure her day. “We program a daily schedule for Kristie to follow her routine,” said her mother Amal. “She likes to know her routine first – I use it also to help her choose her rewards.”
