“Their Personality is Shining!”

Dylan poses with his new device – his new voice!

This week, we received a very special note from Dylan’s Speech Language Pathologist, Sharon, who has helped many kids receive their very own communication device through Variety’s “My Voice” Program.

Here’s what she wrote,

“Thank you again for all that you’re doing for the students here in our building. They are interacting with peers / staff, demonstrating progress towards academics, and their personality is shining!

Specifically, Dylan, who just received his iPad, is our student of the month for using the device purposefully, showing responsibility, and peer tutoring another student with the same iPad / communication app.”

Above is a screenshot of Proloquo2go, the communication app that Dylan uses on his communication device – it gives him a voice at all times.

It’s exciting to hear about the progress and impact being created for kids through using their own communication device. We are all SO thankful to Sharon, and the many, many other individuals that help us to identify eligible kids throughout our communities!
