It uses multi media technology to support communication access.

Expression is supported too by the presence of a 'draw it' widget on each page. This can be used to support conversation by the use of drawing or writing.

These books are designed to be accessible to everyone, including those with moderate - severe language difficulties and cognitive impairments.

An excellent patient centred resource for to support individuals who have suffered a stroke. Great to see the iPad being used in such an innovative manner. What I have explored of this iBook so far is very positive and I highly recommend.
