For Hearing Impaired and Special Education Educators, ESOL Educators, Inclusion Educators, and others…
The Educator’s Challenge
ACT is focusing on the large and growing segment of teens and adults who suffer from neurologically-based speech impairments or other communication difficulties—as well as their friends, parents, and educators.
Bridges App can benefit Educators of the Hearing Impaired, Special-Ed Educators, Inclusion Educators, and any classroom where a premium is placed upon full participation by students with disabilities.
In addition, because of its structured approach to phrase generation, Bridges App is applicable as a therapeutic language learning tool in the realm of speech pathology. For students of low English language ability, Bridges App can function as a classroom learning tool English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) Educators.
As Bridges App increasingly integrates with social media and text-to-speech technology, it will open a world of communication and rapport for the approximately one in ten Americans, including nearly 6 million children, suffering from a communicative disorder.
- Hearing impaired
- Limited English Proficiency
- Traumatic Brain injured
- Veterans (PTSD)
- Speech Apraxia (stroke victims; congenital conditions)
- Intellectually challenged
- Non-verbal due to conditions such as ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder)
- Vocal cord injuries
Not Just English
Built for the future. Many communicative apps use an icon-based approach which slows usage and inhibits the user’s expressive ability. Even worse, iconography can vary by language and culture, generating misunderstanding, confusion, and even offense. In contrast, Bridges App uses a progressively-enhanced language-based interface that can be applied to many languages.
