    LoganTech visits EASTCONN’s Assistive Technology Team

    Article by Joanne Lambert, M.S. CC-SLP - EASTCONN

    Glen Dobbs demonstrating the new waterproof keyboard with the EASTCONN Assistive Technology teamGlen Dobbs, the president and founder of LoganTech visited the Assistive Technology team at EASTCONN to provide a demonstration on a variety of Assistive Technology products. LoganTech was founded back in 2004 when Glen and his family experienced a need to identify an acceptable assistive technology solution for his son, Logan, who has autism and is nonverbal. Glen, the president of LoganTech, used his background in engineering to help to create a better way to communicate with his son and from that he created the well-known Logan® ProxTalker®.

    During Glen’s visit, he brought an array of products ranging from keyguards, mounting systems, AAC products, as well as a new waterproof keyboard. Glen demonstrated the products and the AT staff had the opportunity to interact with the array of products and ask questions.

    Members of the EASTCONN Assistive Technology team listen as Glen shares one of the LoganTech AAC devices; the Megabee®

    LoganTech’s headquarters is based out of Waterbury, Connecticut. The company is staffed by dedicated employees with and without disabilities. A full catalog for LoganTech is available which encompasses low to mid-tech AAC products and accessories, IPad Keyguards, mounting solutions and cradles as well as Braille learning and Braille labeling systems. If you visit the LoganTech website, you will find an array of resources including information on their products, upcoming events, free webinars, and access to their 4-Week “Try Me” Program. You can also request a demonstration at your school, agency, or business. A variety of other resources as well as access to their blog is also available at www.logantech.com.

    Activity & Travel Tips for Happier, More Inclusive Holidays (Webinar)

    Activity & Travel Tips for Happier, More Inclusive Holidays (Webinar)

    We hosted a webinar entitled "Activity & Travel Tips for Happier, More Inclusive Holidays" this month, and it was a lot of fun. We gathered tips and activity ideas from teachers, parents and friends of people with disabilities and shared them during a live presentation on November 17th. 

    We shared ideas for holiday and winter-themed sensory play, activities for long trips, and ways to use assistive technology to allow children with disabilities to help out more with meal prep and cookie making. Then, we talked about new technology that makes it easier for people who are blind or visually impaired travel and locate luggage on a baggage carousel without assistance from fellow travelers or airline workers, and ways to bring multiple generations together using thoughtful iPad apps and interview books. 

    We invite you to watch the recorded webinar online (requires registration) and download the corresponding PowerPoint presentation. 

    How do you ensure everyone is equally involved in holiday fun and preparations? Do you have a go-to sensory play kit that you make up every year, or a special recipe that's easy for kids and adults with disabilities to help out with?

    We'd love to know what you do to make your holidays merry and bright for your friends and family with disabilities. Please comment below!

    "We would tell her what each of the choices were on the ProxTalker.  When Emily would reach out to touch a tag, we provided a prompt to help her push the tag down to create the voice output.  We saw just after a few trials that Emily was making the connection.  She was reaching out on her own to touch the tags to tell us what she wanted.  She would choose tags that were both in the left and right positions, especially if it was for pretzels.  We would rotate the tags out and bring in new choices every 4-5 trials, so that she could learn more tags.  Emily is happy when she has her time throughout the day to use her device.

    Communication is becoming meaningful for her."
