I'm in love with Prentke-Romich and the technology that allows my son to ask for food.
According to Mr. PR we're all making great strides with the Springboard. Micah is navigating and sequencing like a pro, and we as his parents are programming and customizing like old hands. This makes me happy. I'm an overachiever like that. What shocked me was the fact that Michah may outgrow his Springboard much sooner than we all thought. As in, perhaps by next summer he should be moving up to the next level, the *da da da* Vantage.
That sounds so much more high tech, doesn't it? That's because it is. Oh, the things that Vantage can do that the Springboard only wishes that it could. And yet, up until today I was so happy with
Mr. PR agreed wholeheartedly that Micah needed a Vantage. He also told me exactly what options I needed for that Vantage to help Micah make the most of it. It will be so much easier for Micah to navigate and use, that it's already amazing to me what that boy will learn.
I got a return phone call from The Children's Institute today as well. It was a productive day. The therapist there is writing the scrip to send in to purchase this thing. In the fun GoGreen color.
Yeh, I'm just a little bit excited to get things kicked off to get our very own Voice for Micah. And? We could have it in as little as a month. I'm not holding my breath because a month is a long time and even after years of lung capacity training like yelling at kids, I can't hold out that long. But it's coming.
The Vantage Lite will be Micah's Voice to keep until he finds his own.
