High Tech Helps Autistic Kids Communicate on NBC Video

I was excited to see a human interest story on the Los Angeles NBC affiliate news this past weekend. The Hope Technology School in Palo Alto, CA was featured. The video showed students combining their use of a Lightwriter for text to speech communication and the new HP TouchSmart touchscreen PC.
After watching, I explored links to both the school and the technology and found the video to share with you here. I want to look into the program being used on the TouchSmart. If anyone knows about it, please share a comment on it with us.
Enjoy the video!

All the best to you!
