Hi I’m Rob and this is my beautiful little girl Sadie. Thank you for taking the time to read OUR story.

As a nonverbal family we understand that we are not unique, and that there are so many loving families, just like ours, living with verbal disabilities all over the world.

Our community is full of passionate people who are always striving to add value to our loved one’s lives.

People like you and me who understand that all we want is to communicate with our child, understand how they are feeling, what they desire and how we can support them.

As a parent we can all relate to the overwhelming need, want, and desire to protect and provide a better quality of life for our children. However, you and I have a pesky obstacle in our path called “NONVERBAL” which tries to stop us from achieving these goals.

It’s this that inspires us to constantly ask these questions.

  • How can we help Sadie explain who she is as a person?
  • How can we provide a way for Sadie to express her individual likes and dislikes her own needs, wants, and desires?
  • How can we provide a way to remove some of the limitations placed upon her, and help change society’s perception of who she is?

This way of thinking led to TippyTalk. I truly believe we must have expectations for our children, and provide them with the tools and skills necessary for them to reach their full potential. Without this commitment we are just placing more limitations upon them.

TippyTalk allows our Sadie communicate who she is, when she is sad, happy, frustrated or not feeling well. TippyTalk helps to reduce our frustration while also expanding Sadie’s social network beyond the confines of a room.

I am just a Dad who had an idea, which we are so thankful for, the value TippyTalk has added to our family’s life, we find hard to describe in words.

That’s why we hope your family can become part of our TippyTalk community and share you own personal experiences with families just like ours.
