...a place for bragging about the success of our friends with special needs and their teams!
From Mrs. Carlson, High School Special Needs Teacher: All three boys are NovaChat AAC device users "I want to tell you all about 3 AT wins we had yesterday in class with our guys. They were completing their "Thankful Turkeys" and all they needed was a one word response to what they were thankful for which was presented by Ms. B. as what makes them happy. J. navigated his device independently to tell her without being prompted to his teacher page and selected all 4 of us, favorite Ms. J. twice. Z. also used his device to find Art which he then carefully wrote on his turkey. Jo. also navigated his device to find his mom to complete his assignment. All 3 boys chose their devices as their means of communication and successfully navigated to find their selected responses. I'm so pleased with their success!"
From Mrs. Poole, Elementary Special Needs Teacher: 5 students using Tobii Dynavox T10 AAC devices

"I just had he pleasure of speaking with Vicki Clark from Dynamic Therapy services. She has been working with the students at SCMS in the autism classroom. I am so impressed with her approach. Not only in providing a comprehensive assessment but also her willingness to think and act as a team. I appreciate her desire to find good AAC solutions for our students and her commitment to providing ongoing support, giving us the skills we need to use existing or new communication systems . Thanks so much for investing in our students this way!"
