FRS provides the latest technology to help individuals communicate and enhance their lives
Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS)
ALS can be one of the most difficult conditions to go through. Both care givers and the patient can suffer from frequent moments of frustration and depression while trying to meet needs and wants. With compromised speech the patient’s ability to communicate is severely limited at a time when communication is most critical.
Cerebral Vascular Accident (Stroke)
A stroke occurs when blood flow is interrupted to part of the brain. Without blood to supply oxygen and nutrients and to remove waste products, brain cells quickly begin to die. Depending on the region of the brain affected, a stroke may cause paralysis, speech impairment, loss of memory and reasoning ability, coma, or death. A stroke also is sometimes called a brain attack or a cerebrovascular accident (CVA).

Cerebral Palsy (CP)
Limited motor control leaves a person with CP unable to do many physical tasks. Usually born with normal or near normal cognitive function but may present as lower functioning for age due to missed milestone and educational deficits caused by severe physical limitations.
NEED TO REWRITE Needs – Not to be underestimated. Needs speech device and software that can help them sound as intelligent as they really are. Strong desire to be like peers, capable, cool, and social. Needs access to phone, computer, email, texting, environmental controls, TV, music and academics. Important solutions for the classroom would be writing support, communication, ability to answer questions, test taking and reading.
Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)
Children with autism suffer from more intense and frequent loneliness compared to non-autistic peers, despite the common belief that children with autism prefer to be alone. About a third to a half of individuals with autism do not develop enough natural speech to meet their daily communication needs. This can result in unique behavior and social patterns used by the individual to communicate wants, needs, likes and dislikes.
Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a nondegenerative, noncongenital insult to the brain from an external mechanical force, possibly leading to permanent or temporary impairment of cognitive, physical, and psychosocial functions, with an associated diminished or altered state of consciousness.
