It’s so frustrating to do an AAC evaluation, finish the trials, and submit the report to insurance and then have to WAIT for months until the student gets his device. I have a student who is practicing on the school Accent 1400 with NuEye until his device gets approved. He has the best sense of humor and has been rocking the device!
This week when I was working with him during a literacy “Working with Words” group, he used the device to say “look look” when the teacher forgot to show him the materials! The next day his teacher asked if he needed to be changed and he quickly said “do want need!” He’s been chatting up a storm and making sure everyone knows he is there and ready to communicate!
Such a nice change from a few months ago when he had no communication system!
