Spiro takes Crayola World! Light baord was a hit for his CVI.

Spiro takes Crayola World for the first time. Light board  was a hit for his CVI but with his Hypotonic CP I had to get a little creative and actually hand him the pegs to touch, hold, and lay on his tray before I put it back on the board.  Visually with his CVI it was a hit but we did our best to creatively still include him in the process of playing with it.

Finding My Voice!

I was part of a program that helped me record my voice sounds and blend them with pre-recorded sentences my Dad read. This was the creation of My Voice! It was a huge success and I love how I sound- not like the robotic machine voice that everyone has in the room! Guess I need to be careful what I say now!
