IPads are one resource for those with minimal verbal or non-verbal abilities.

Minimally verbal and non-verbal individuals with disabilities are especially vulnerable to barriers to all sorts of basic services because they can't talk and advocate for themselves. The ICAN Talk Clinic in downtown Pittsburgh specializes in serving this population. We'll look at their work with Speech-Language Pathologist Evelyn Meinert and Dr. Katya Hill, Director of the ICAN Talk Clinic.

Also in the program, we'll discover why the election code for third party candidates is seemingly unconstitutional and Iceoplex at Southpointe installs a bright orange safety feature for hockey players.
