Apple’s Technology Helped an Autistic Teen Find His Voice

“Having a voice has changed everything in my life.  No more isolation!” -Dillon

“One of the challenges is the the area of not having communication, not having a way to know what he’s thinking and feeling… Not being able to speak isn’t the same as not having something to say….Everyone has to have a voice and he wants everyone to have one” -Tami Barmache, Dillian’s Mom
