Through pressing buttons of pre-programmed speech sounds or words, animal learners can share their requests, thoughts, and feelings with their people. With time and patience, learners have been incredibly successful. Some have not only been able to communicate needs and wants, but also seem to relay more abstract concepts such as feelings or time. AIC buttons also give animals the opportunity to remind us of things (Flounder reminds her mom to give her brother medicine), they are able to ask for help when they need help with something (Flounder requesting help when her toy is stuck under the couch), and it also gives us the opportunity to explain things better to them. Example: Increased chances of cooperative care at the vet (explaining “Ouch now, Treat Later”), decreasing anxiety when people go away with a concrete understanding of time such as “today” and “tomorrow”, really the possibilities are endless!
