Thats great. My son loves the magna doodle. He doesn't use it to communicate much but he writes the words of his favorite things. I have found that writing messages either on paper or the magna doodle seem to be followed better by my son.
: My son sean has autism,communication was very hard.Sean never uttered a word or never really seemed to comprehend any thing.One day i bought a simple toy called a magma doodle...and it changed are lives dramatically,sean began to write things messages he started communicating to me and my husband through this simple toy..this toy as simple as it is gave sean a way to communicate.he has had a least 10 magma doodles.Sean was tested at his school he's only 4 and he is reading at an 8 year old level amazing!!!!un believable but true..he is communicating alot more and talking because we write on this simple toy everyday..just words,draw pictures,you may want to try this it may sound silly but sean has come a long way .we wrote on this toy his name first...then we would write things like juice,,simple words.then we would write i want juice and say it to him.he carries this toy everywhere and is improving everyday...you may be amazed.Sean is going to pre-school this year and i told the principal at his school about this and they are thinking about buying a few of thesesimple toys.
