Available in August!

Hey Tek-ninjas! So the Core Skater Shoes© are going to be available the first week of August. There will be a link here on Tek-ninja to make a purchase. This first batch is a limited run in women's sizing (wanted to see the interest before I invested in too many). 

If demand is high, I will order a second batch - and if interest is there, I will get men's sizing as well.

Based on what I've seen on social media, these may well sell out very quickly. If you are interested - and don't want to wait for the second run... get your's quickly!

Snap Core First EXTENDED TRIAL!

 
Hey Tek-ninjas! I've got a quick one for you today. Did you know that Tobii Dynavox offers a FREE trial Snap Core First? If you've read my blog for awhile, you probably do - cause I write about it a lot... But, typically the trial is 30 days, but during the pandemic, the trial duration is extended to 60 days!

If you are struggling to help someone communicate - perhaps they've never had an AAC solution, or
they have other software that folks are just struggling to use/customize which can negatively impact engagement, you've got little to lose in trying Snap Core First. Snap Core First provides solutions for those who would benefit from Symbol-based, Text-literate, or Aphasia-oriented pagesets.

If it proves to be THE solution, the software retails for a mere $49.99 - all the time. Likely, you know that most other AAC solutions are retailing for 5 to 6 times that much.

You can find the free trial for Windows 10 here, or iOS here.

Go deliver a voice, it feels amazing!

AAC Interactive Office

Hey Tek-ninjas! So this is kind'a cool (and kind'a dorky, but imma own it! 

The picture below an interactive AAC Office that I update with clickable links to important resources—even back to my blog. It's silly, but bookmark it. I think it could be helpful. 

Maybe make your own for your kiddos and parents? 

Happy therapy!!

Snap Core First Integrates the Boardmaker Player!

Hey Tek-ninjas! One of the new updates that just came out for Snap Core First is the integrated Boardmaker Player in Snap. This update allows you to play preloaded and interactive activities from Boardmaker right in your Snap software. To use this new feature, you DO NOT have to have a Boardmaker account. 

If you are unsure if you have the latest updated version of Snap Core First, click on the Sync Cloud in the top right corner - if you have an update to run, it will inform you so there. 

My colleague, Adam Slota, the Chicago Pediatric Solution Consultant for Tobii Dynavox does a really terrific job showing how well this works in the video below. 


To access the Quick Guides, please use the following two links: Boardmaker Player - How to Use Boardmaker Player - Adding Activities.

If you'd like to learn more about this exciting new update, reach out to your area Solution Consultant. You can find that individual here

Happy Therapy!
