Hello my name is Keslie. I am 18 years old. I use a PRC device.

Imagine that you were the only person at your school with a communication device. Nobody else like you. How do you learn how to use a communication device?

Where I grew up there was nobody else like me really. I grew up in a small little mountain town. So I was pretty much self-taught because it was new to my speech therapist at the time also. I would say that in the beginning it was a toy to play with for me.

I would play with my older brother a lot of the time to learn the device also. He was cool with playing with his little sister. We would tell jokes to each other and sing songs together that I had on my device. I had fun and I think my brother had fun too.

Advice to parents, get your other children involved with helping their brother or sister learn the device. It is a win-win, they think it is cool and they will be helping their brother or sister which is always awesome.

My email is if you have any questions I am happy to help you anyway that I can.
