My name is marie.. I am here to talk about my father.. he had stroke and TBI. umm.. he cant write or type.. I am trying to find a way to communicate with him. he used to blink but not anymore. he start to say words but not really clear.. like he said no, yes, ok, and others. The plm is i am hard of hearing.. its hard for me to get what he is trying to say.. sometime i have to bring someone with me who can hear him more than i am.. I know they do have the machine that copy the voice and translate to people what he is trying to say.. I swore i saw it somewhere at college.. it was really cool. I am trying to think of that name.. but couldnt remember. i did tried to use the paper but it seems might be too much for his brain to read.. i dont want to burn out his brain.. please help and thanks have a nice weekend..
I think you're pretty 'brainy'!
You caregivers are geniuses.
For common needs, like Hungry, Bathroom #1, bathroom #1, you could make up chart and have him point. Sure you'll be amazed at what people have come up with to handle this problem.
ABLEDATA has a great list of communication aids.
