Challenge: Communicating with the world
Nadav hears and understands everything, but cannot communicate well. Nadav communicates by writing on a board or tablet and by raising his hand and leg to signal yes and no. Nadav, his family and his caretakers are looking for a solution to enable him not only to respond - but to initiate contact with his surroundings as he used to.
