  1. Hi Samuel,

    I thought I might encourage you to investigate a fairly new software program, ClaroRead. It’s a multi-sensory software solution for students with reading and writing challeneges. It competes with other learning programs like WYNN and Kurzweil but is significantly less expensive, which may be appealing to your readers – schools on a budget or home users who cannot afford to spend $1000.000. It seems to gaining a good deal of attention with many these days.

    We enjoy your site and use it often for helpful feedback on AT.

  2. Sara,

    Thanks I look forward to checking it out. To me it is very important to have the competition and options for this type of software.

    As some students absolutely benefit from Kurzweil 3000 in particular, there are others that benefit from some of the tool aspects that should not be left out due to the school shying away from the price status.

    I think the definition of a good teacher or AT specialist is someone who can fit those options in the SETT without having the purchase order cancelled. Many times that may mean being streamlined to the goal.

    Thanks for the feedback!

    Have you seen the Ning site: assistivetech.ning.com ?

  7. Wow, what an interesting site. Do you mind if I refer people to it from the ConnSENSE Bulletin website?
    Cheers,

  8. Of course. It would be neat to talk about some ConnSENSE collaboration. I have admired the work for quite some time. Love the podcast element.

  9. HI Sam!
    I was in your audience during your BookShelves Please! session at Closing the Gap on 10.18.08! I wanted to tell you that I took away so much from that session! And your Energy is unmatched! I currently work at a school for 270 students 3-22 with multiple disabilities, autism, and MR. I am one, on a team of 2 AT Specialists for our school and have already shared, with all of our teachers, some of the useful information that you shared on Saturday!

    I am a Penn State Alum and took classes with Janice LIght and Kathryn Drager! How I miss those Penn State days and fabulous Professors! Good Luck with all of your work and I look forward to hearing about you in the near future!

  10. Allison,

    Thank you very much for the encouragement. That session was very special to me. You could feel everyone realizing what we can do. email me at samuel.sennott@gmail.com if you want to connect to the beta testing part of the social studies project. It is looking very good. Cheers.

    From,

    Sam
