      Words from our Roger users

       

      "I just plug it into my phone and it’s like... it’s really cool! It makes me feel a lot more confident in social situations. And it makes me feel a lot more comfortable to go out with friends, or sit down in the cafeteria and not just listen but to engage in the conversation."

      Audrey Quinn 

       
       
       

      "The best part is that I always catch everything that is said in the lessons. I don't have to devote my energy to just listening to what is being said and instead I can concentrate on the teaching itself and on learning, just like my fellow students.”
