St. Paul, MN – December 8, 2011 – AbleNet is proud to introduce Fijit Friends, the hottest toy for the 2011 Holiday Season in switch adapted form! Play is one of the fundamental ways all of us learn, including persons with disabilities. Volumes of research demonstrate that entertainment of all kinds - for children and adults - speeds learning and understanding. AbleNet specifically selected Fijit because of her ability to recognize over 30 keywords and respond with over 150 phrases a key to encourage learning, inclusion, as well as entertainment.
“What makes Fijit a great toy for children with disabilities is its ability to recognize and respond to certain voice commands." said Jason Voiovich, Vice-President of Marketing. " and if your child is non-verbal it's easily paired with AbleNet's Step-by-Step communicator for hours of enjoyment.”
