Belle Ryan Teacher's Reach Extends Beyond the Classroom
Kristin Larson is reaching out to the community for funding to purchase two adaptive communication devices -- the GoTalk 4+ and the GoTalk 9+. These two communication devices are the first step for young children who need assistance to communicate their wants and needs. She currently has one of each to use in the classroom, but having a set of the GoTalks to lend to her students' families for use at home would be incredibly valuable to their language development.
