ROSEVILLE, Minn. – March 15, 2012 – AbleNet announced today the addition of the BIG Step-by-Step with Levels and BIG Step-by-Step Choice with Levels to its growing line of low-cost easy-tech AAC solutions. Both solutions include a large 5-inch activation surface, 3 levels to record to and up to 4-minutes of recording time on the device. The BIG Step-by-Step Choice with Levels solution also includes a new feature “choice”, which allows a user to easily skip over multiple messages to get to a desired message by repeatedly pressing the activation surface. The Step-by-Step product line now includes six different easy-to-use communication solutions.
“One of our core competencies is our ability to listen to our customers and seek unique solutions they see as essential to help them meet the needs of their student, clients, or family members. The addition of these two new products will enhance our portfolio of high quality cost-effective voice output products.” stated Jen Thalhuber, AbleNet CEO.
To help teachers, clinicians and parents better understand the Step-by-Step products along with other AAC devices, AbleNet has an online learning session called Assistive Technology Strategies for Individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorders available.
