Rehabmart.com, an online e-commerce company that sells rehabilitation and medical supplies, has joined into a distribution alliance with AbleNet, Incorporated, to offer their QuickStart Assistive Technology Communication Kit to a broader consumer market. As one of the world's leaders in the development of cutting edge assistive technology and curriculum solutions, AbleNet is an international company providing technical and educational answers to help children and adults with disabilities to lead more fulfilled and productive lives. Their products include communication and access aids, along with special education classroom curriculum that enhance learning progress.
Specifically designed with speech language pathologists and assistive technology trainers in mind, the QuickStart Assistive Technology Communication Kit includes everything that teachers and students require for voice output communication. Bringing together three of AbleNet's most popular communicators, this kit also includes the terrific resource book, Making Connections by Peggy Locke, Ph. D and Jackie Levin, M.A. This “practical guide for bringing the world of communication to students with disabilities” gives the therapist, teacher or parent easy steps for introducing one to four message communication, and shows how voice output communication is a powerful and effective way for individuals to have a direct and positive impact on their lives, even when they don't understand language or have severe disabilities.
Perfect for workshops or demos, this kit also includes a handy foam packed case and a belt mount travel strap which keeps it secure and protected when moving from school to school. Other features include track links, snap cap covers, plug to plug toy/appliance cables and 9 volt batteries. “We are delighted to introduce the QuickStart Communication Kit from AbleNet to more therapists, teachers and parents,” said Hulet Smith, OTR/L, MBA and CEO of Rehabmart. “This handy kit is perfect for a wide range of assistive communication activities and does not require any prerequisites for voice output communication.

We recommend this kit to anyone wanting to learn more about how to incorporate the use of communication aids into the lives of people just beginning to learn how to communicate.”
