Communication has been a major problem for children with cognitive disabilities and spastic children. They are unable to effectively communicate their needs to their parents and caretakers. Modern advancements in communication technology, with increased capabilities of mobile phones, provide scope to design assistive technologies for these children. In this paper, we describe the design of a smartphone based communication device for children with cognitive disabilities and spastic children. We also present early findings on how it was successful in increased engagement between the children and caretakers, along with further r capabilities that the device can cater to.
