Amazon Echo Buttons are an incredible resource for individuals with complex/special needs. These programmable wireless buttons can aid communication and interaction for those with disabilities. Especially those who are non verbal. Amazon seem to of stopped producing them which will also mean eventually they will stop supporting them. This petition asks to continue production and support with improved focus on them as an aid for those with disabilities.

The buttons allow multiple actions from a single button press. This could be for example turning on a light playing a favourite tune then announcing that it’s time to get ready for school. I use these buttons with my daughter who has a severe form of cerebral palsy. She is quadriplegic and non-verbal. Using these buttons have massively improved her motor skills and helped develop her communication. 

They are a greatly underused resource and require more support and education to help others utilise them.
