You are about to discover the Susan laughs app, part of the "Books for all" project: you will read the story of Jeanne Willis digitally for the first time in symbols of Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC).
WHY CHOOSE BOOKS FOR EVERYONE
The goal of the project is to promote accessible reading for all children who, alone or with help, will be able to choose three different ways to read Susan laughs story:
with modeling they will be able to use the tap on the single symbols to listen to the narrator
or they will be able to hear the same voice in a continuous reading of the symbols, it will be easy to follow the story because the symbols light up when they are read
finally they will be able to choose the alphabetical text, deciding whether to read or listen, the narrator accompanies them also in this part
AN INCLUSIVE STORY
Susan's story, as narrated by Jean Willis, is inclusive and emotional and harmoniously links the text and images.
The simple sentences, from the daily lexicon, allow each child to be involved in Susan's world.
Everyone will be able to laugh, make faces, swim and dance with Susan using the tap on the animated images. They will live with her many adventures in the games section.
And they will have fun with a story for children who want to grow up independently.
The animations and games have been designed by the Paideia Foundation in collaboration with linguists, doctors and speech therapists in order to help children develop their sensory and linguistic skills.
Finally, children have at their disposal a tool that talks to them, telling them stories they can understand and love.
