BridgingApps Austin and Easter Seals Central Texas Host Back to School Open House

Our back to school Fall Open House was a great time for everyone.  Guests learned a little something and made connections with others using a mobile device to benefit someone with a disability.  Easter Seals Central Texas Occupational therapist, Quina Brown, demonstrated apps that she has been using during her therapy sessions.  Parent Jennifer Bengston demonstrated apps that she uses with her child, including Proloquo2Go.  And App Developer Kristin Steen demonstrated the app that she has created called Flashcards by Me, as well as many other apps that she uses with her son.  Julie Smith demonstrated different aspects of the BridgingApps website and displayed all the different hardware options that can make a mobile device more accessible.

Due to Halloween we will meet on Thursday November 1st from 6-7pm instead of our usual “last Wednesday”.  We are in the process of finding a different location for this meeting.  I will post the new meeting site on our map as soon as we have confirmation.  This will be more of a presentation style meeting and we look forward to seeing you there!!
