This documentary gave me a broader view of the impact of AT devices in the everyday lives of people who use them. I often only think of them within the context of the school building, but this documentary reminded me of how crucial they are to everyday communication. It was really inspiring to see how much these devices can promote communication and expression.
It was so amazing to see Maya's progress using AT. It was great to see another story where belief in the child yielded such incredible results. It was fascinating to see Maya get better and better at using her device and ultimately hearing her speak full words.
This video had me wondering about all the potential and capabilities students have with assistive technology. It was so amazing to see people be able to communicate freely and to see teachers learn things about their students that they never knew--all because of assistive technology!
This video reminded me that communication comes in many forms, including artistic expression. It was great to see the artists in this video express themselves in so many different ways. I really resonated with the statement at the end, when the need to have these kinds of programs in schools was brought up. It is so important for people to have an outlet to express themselves.
