Thank You for a PrAACtical Giveaway Celebration
We wanted to sincerely thank everyone for making our first ever giveaway a true PrAACtical AAC celebration. It was so much fun (Thanks Speech Tree, Tech in Special Education, and Rafflecopter). We hope to be doing more very soon. We feel like we got to know so many of you and are very appreciative for your participation and interaction. Congratulations to Jennifer, who is our winner!
We know that our giveaway was about AAC and since everyone could not win, we searched for other opportunities that would give you another chance to win or get funding for an AAC app.
iTaalk: App Facilitator Program
iTaalk has a program that will grant apps to applicants with a minimum cost of $25. There is an application process and not all requests can be accommodated but they try very hard to be able to honor as many requests as possible. You must have an iPad/iTouch to participate in this program.
Small Steps in Speech
Small Steps in Speech offers grants for communication needs and although traditionally accepts AAC device requests, it seems they would be willing to accept requests for AAC apps.
Autism Speaks has a list of organizations that provide family grants. If you find a great one here, please let us know.
*disclaimer- Winning an AAC app or getting funding through these programs is NOT guaranteed.
