Jessica is actively developing social skills to interact more autonomously with her peers. She uses an iPad to overcome some challenges with communication and more clearly articulate her wants and needs, as well as those of her friends. She will use this iPad as she moves out into the community to help establish new relationships and to gain the independence that coincides with discovering her voice.
