Cboard application makes communication easier for children with disabilities

In this article from Montenegro it is clear how important family support can be when an AAC user is developing their speech and language skills and abilities. The use of a communication aid is clearly helping Bojana speed up the process as her sister Marija says:

"Bojana learns faster with me using the tablet, and she is happy when we do things together. I am teaching her to hold a pencil, draw lines, and pronounce certain words."
