WE LOVE & NEED YOUR SUCCESS STORIES!
Please remember to submit 2nd Quarter success stories as they are due by April 5th, which includes a high resolution photograph of the individual using AT. We're providing a "cheat sheet" of what high-resolution means, based on the size of the .jpg your camera produces. We can use anything from 500kb on up – the higher the resolution the better. And, if you want to upload them to our DropBox account, use the login below, and then just let us know you uploaded them there.
If you have any questions, please let me know.

Lilly is a 4 year old from Tulsa County and has Down syndrome. She is very speech delayed and can’t articulate well enough to be understood. She was becoming increasingly frustrated and her parents were afraid she would lose confidence. Pathways helped Lilly find a communication device to help her. Because of this device, she is better at all of her activities, her confidence improved and she now can participate in activities led by non-therapists.
iBill Talking Banknote Identifier
Demo Only Item
The new currency reader, called the iBill Talking Banknote Identifier, is a compact device that announces a note’s value by voice, pattern of tones, or pattern of vibrations. Users insert a bill into the device and press the button on the device’s side to have the denomination identified. The currency reader does not identify foreign or counterfeit banknotes. The size of a key fob, it can be carried in a pocket or purse, clipped to a belt, or attached to a keychain or lanyard. ABLE Tech has recently acquired several of these devices from the U.S. Currency Reader Program, which is under The Department of the Treasury, Bureau of Engraving and Printing.
|Blind and visually impaired citizens (and legal residents) are eligible to receive a currency reader at no cost. There is some criteria required to qualify but it's reasonable. Here's the PDF application with the criteria outlined on the back side.|
