The official conference began today with special needs professionals from all around Ohio. There is a smattering from other states including Indiana, West Virginia, Kentucky, Arkansas and New York. The majority are from public school districts, though state agencies and many small private clinics are represented. We spoke to very dedicated, hard working people who provide a lot of support for the kids they serve. When they try TapToTalk, they name the specific kids they think it will help or the parents they will recommend it to.
The booth was busy all day, with a real crush during session breaks.
Quote of the day: “Get out of here…you did what?” TapToTalk received that reaction more times than we could keep count of from the twenty-something special needs professionals who love the idea of an AAC device on a DS.
Second most frequent quote: “You’re geniuses.” Always good to get ego strokes on a busy day.
Third most frequent quote: “My co-worker told me I had to see this.” Usually a psychologist sending a speech therapist or a speech therapist sending an administrator.We'll be back tomorrow with our OCALI Day 3 report.
