March 28th marked the first official meeting of BridgingApps Austin.  Introductions were made and there was a good mix of parents, teachers, and therapists that attended the meeting.  Participants were able to network, share, and  help each other.  This truly was a highlight of the meeting.

Julie Melton Smith led the meeting and spoke about  the essence of each monthly BridgingApps meeting.  She showed the guests several pieces of hardware, demonstrated 3 Apps (SpellBoard/iReward/iWriteWords), and touched upon some basic aspects of the BridgingApps website.

The group had a great discussion about Bubcaps.  Everyone agreed that it is near impossible to keep their child in the App that they would like for them to be in.  This little piece of hardware offered guests an easy solution!

We would love for you to join us at our next monthly meeting!  BridgingApps meets the last Wednesday of each month at Easter Seals of Central Texas, 1611 Headway Cir, Bldg 2, Austin, TX 78754.  For more information contact Julie Melton Smith at jsmith@eastersealshouston.org.
