Derek is a 10-year-old boy with Down Syndrome. He has a very limited selection of verbal words, but he has so much to say. As a result, he is very frustrated and so are his family and friends who want to understand him. But help is on its way…an iPad with the necessary apps will help Derek to communicate with his friends his family and his community.
