Ryan and Brittani Rollen are parents of a nonverbal son. After experiencing his frustrations in being unable to communicate, they developed The Tiny Talker to help him. The Tiny Talker is a portable, inexpensive speech aid with 12 buttons which verbalize common communication needs. Then, the Rollens had a new idea: a book would help kids with special needs learn how to use The Tiny Talker and other speech aids! In Lucas the Lion Loves The Tiny Talker, parents can read their child the story of how Lucas uses The Tiny Talker throughout his day. In reading the story, the child presses the buttons on The Tiny Talker[[ and learns to use the device!
