ENDED - Giveaway: Gab n Go Harness by Safe n Sound Mobile


Win a Gab n Go Harness 
from
 Safe n Sound Mobile
USA RESIDENTS ONLY - UNLESS YOU ARE WILLING TO PAY FOR INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING

It’s no secret that AAC devices can bring the world of a language to a non-verbal child.  What’s not as known, however, is how to overcome the biggest challenge of investing in one – getting your child to actually use it.  Due to the accessibility of these devices, many end up damaged, lost, or on the shelf – where they are no use to your child. 
Safe n Sound Mobile has developed a solution to change that – our new patent-pending Gab n Go harness. It puts the AAC device where it needs to be – right in front -- making communication for your child easy, accessible, and timely.

This unique solution, designed for iPhone/iPod AAC devices, features –
  • A comfortable, fully adjustable, washable harness that positions the mobile device out front, thereby maximizing accessibility and eliminating communication delays. 
  • An outward facing, 500 mW, fully rechargeable attached speaker that ensures your child will be heard.  
  •  Easy to remove cables that connect all the components.
  • A securing component to protect the mobile device from loss or damage.

Harness the power of your AAC device today.
Your AAC device was a smart investment to help your child communicate. Get the most of it by purchasing a Gab n Go harness. You’ll discover how rewarding communication can be.


PUT THE POWER OF COMMUNICATION INTO THE HANDS OF YOUR CHILD

  1. I would LOVE to win this awesome harness. I have preschoolers with autism. They cannot communicate their needs & wants out on the playground or out in the community when we are on field trips because it is not safe to take our iPads or iPods outside for fear they will be broken & we cannot afford to replace them. but this harness would allow my students to get these devices anywhere & be able to communicate with peers, teachers, the public, etc. AMAZING!!!!

  2. I would love to use this harness with my 17 year old son. He has severe spastic quad CP, visual impairment and a severe seizure disorder. Sebastian does have some "autistic like" behaviors. He is using the IPOD alot, more lately that we have seen him be able to use it functionally. The problem is it falls off the wheelchair tray alot. Its only hit the floor twice, but then he is afraid to use it. He does use it for communication, although not all the time. mostly when he is having alot of seizure activity or is tired and frustrated. The other problem is that right now he needs someone to get it or put it away for him, not to mention getting it when he drops it.

  3. I would love to win this harness for my 14 year old daughter who has CP, autism and scoliosis. She can use AAC apps on an ipod but due to neuromuscular and balance issues, she is at ris for dropping the ipod at any time and without warning. This would enable her to have more independence and allow her to use it at school (which has hard tile floors). I love the cool black and white pattern. Thanks for the chance to enter this awesome giveaway!

  4. I would love this harness for my daughter who is blind. She currently carries her iPod in one hand and her cane in the other. It would be so much better if her iPod could be attached to the harness.

    I would also love it for my daughter who has autism and uses an iPad. I would feel so much better about letting her take the iPad out of the house if it was attached to a harness.

  5. I would live this for my son who has CP and autism. He is nonverbal but what words he tried to produce are mostly impossible to understand by those outside the family and even we struggle a lot of the time. He has a few speech apps and knows how to use them however he often times cannot remember where he left the device last time he had it or he gets super frustrated and throws it across the room. This would stop both of those AND make it do we could actually hear the words from the speech apps We've had our eye on this harness for some time but as a single mom on disability myself it's just not something I've been able to figure out how to swing. Thank you. Katrena Lee

  7. This would go into my 'nanny' bag so when I am working with kids and we are out and about we have a way for them to take the iPod with them.

  8. I would like to win this device because I have two students who use devices. One a tech-talk 8 and one has the go talk 9. Neither of them prefer using their machines

  9. So they forget them everywhere and do not get to communicate to their full potential. This is very important in order to foster continuous communication in school and at home...
