Find a Conversation

My DD has severe CP. She is almost 14 yrs old. We are trying to find ideas on how to help her become more independent and unfortunately her speech is a big problem. We are in the process of discussing a communication device, Dynavox. I was just wondering if anyone out there has heard of them or has any experience with it? Or possibly any advice or opinions on how to help my DD be able to communicate better. Most communication devices I have had experience with so far have been either too slow going... you can't really use them for real life conversations (which is what she is wanting) without being able to type everything into it, plus we really need something to work with being able to participate more in school work and classes. She is unable to type (hands will not steady enough for this) and switch scanning tends to be too slow and frustrating for her.
