Living an All Access Life with Brad and Dan!

 Hey Tek-ninjas! Have you heard of "All Access Life"? If not, get familiar with their work. You will be inspired, and educated. That's a beautiful feeling! 

Brad and Dan run the company. They've had a long friendship which you can read about here, and the quality of their friendship comes through in all of their videos with their joking and mutual respect for one another. Their intention in making "All Access Life" was to create a website that showcases the latest trends and movements in adaptive products and assistive technologies. 

Brad was born with nonverbal spastic quadriplegic cerebral palsy, and he showcases products that have made a difference in his life. Additionally, they also showcase products which are appropriate for folk with various disabilities. 

The videos are not just informative, they are super fun to watch. According to their website, their "mission is to empower people with disabilities to live their best life through adaptive products". That's our jam here at Tek-ninja! 

On the website, they review products which have transformed Brad's life. You can see video reviews about those  adaptive products on their featured products page

Perhaps my favorite video is the unboxing of the newest Tobii Dynavox innovation, which I've blogged about before, the TD Pilot. 


So, go check out "All Access Life", you may find a technological solution that helps make someone's life better!

Happy therapy!

TD Snap Discount!


Hey Tek-ninjas! We are coming up on World Autism Day. For folks working with AAC, that often means deep discounts on pricey communication apps. Annual discounts are great, but I believe pricing should not be an obstacle to having a voice. 

I love that TD Snap is so affordable year round. Following the trend of discounting communication apps, April 2nd, TD Snap will be on sale in the Apple store at 15% off. It will be a one day, Apple Store only sale. 

APRIL 2nd, TD Snap will be 15% off.

April 2nd, the AAC app which is normally $49.99, will be approximately $42.50!

If you are in a school district, and leveraging the Volume Purchase Program even when NOT on sale, 20 copies of TD Snap costs equal to or less than the 2 copies of the competition's software. 

Also, I want to highlight, that if your AAC communicator is text-literate, and does NOT need symbol support, TD Talk remains free for your iOS users. That's year round. I blogged about TD Talk a few weeks back here

Do you know someone who needs a voice? One of these offerings may be just what they need.

Never stop learning!

 

Hey Tek-ninjas! This is simply a quick reminder of all the amazing live webinars available to you on the Tobii Dynavox Learning Hub for a variety of AAC subject matter. No cost. Click here, and then bookmark the page if you haven't already. 

You can log in to the Learning Hub with the same credentials you may have for mytobiidynavox, the Tobii Dynavox eFunding portal, or your Boardmaker Online account. That's right, they all use Single Sign On. 


In addition to the live webinar courses, there are a number (about 36) pre-recorded ASHA approved courses for CEUs. I've mentioned this before, but as an Occupational Therapist, I've submitted these courses with AOTA, and received full credit as well. My favorite courses were the Scanning 101, 102, and 103

Happy therapy!

The more you know....

 Hey Tek-ninjas! I have blogged about the Tobii Dynavox Learning Hub multiple times before. I'm doing so again today. 

If you are interested in AAC, perhaps you are a parent, an educator, or a therapist (SLP, OT, PT, etc) this educational content is for you, and you can choose catered content. There is no cost to access any of it. All you need is "Single Sign On" Tobii Dynavox account. And, if you have a Tobii Dynavox account, that's what you have!

A Single Sign ON account will allow you to access all the courses and webinars in the Learning Hub. That same account will allow you to access mytobiidynavox, the eFunding Platform, AND Boardmaker Online


If you are a Speech Therapist, you should know, there are currently 36 courses with ASHA approved CEUs. As an Occupational Therapist, I was able to submit all of them, and received credit from AOTA as well. All of those 36 courses are either 30 or 60 minutes long. While this content is built by Tobii Dynavox, I'm pleased that a lot of the content can be generalized to all AAC interventions. 

So, go get your learning on!
