Through Her iPad, Jordyn Zimmerman Shares Her Voice

Imagine struggling to express your thoughts verbally. You have the words inside your head, but communicating those ideas through speech is difficult, maybe even impossible. That's a task some individuals with autism face, and have to work to overcome.

Jordyn Zimmerman is an example of that struggle, but a shining success in conquering the challenge. The Mentor High graduate began communicating through an app on her iPad in 2014. Now, she's a student at Ohio University and is being honored with a personal achievement award this week at the 2018 Milestones National Autism Conference.
