Hello, I’m a therapist with 10 years of experience working with severe visually impaired toddlers.

For the past years I have developed free professional software and games that help visually impaired toddlers (ages 0-3) practice their visual skills with a therapist. Examples include understanding illustrations, object tracking, and hand-eye coordination.

This free, non-profit, non-advertisements software is widely used by therapists in Israel. Recently, an English translation was released.

I’m looking for individuals/organizations who can make good use of such software to aid the visually impaired.

I’d be glad to get feedback from therapists who work with toddlers with visual impairments outside of Israel. It can significantly help the toddler’s practice of visual skills at the critical age where the vision system is developed.

You can see it on my website:
https://tarmil.web.app/en/

Thank you.

Hello! I am a speech pathologist and I would like to try a dynamic screen device with Touch Chat and Lamp for life loaded on it. I am working with a four year old student who is working on trialing various software to determine which is best.
He has already tried Snap Core first on an iPad. I am open to using any dynamic screen device. If there is any way he can trial a clear screen guard to use with 25-40 openings that would be great to determine if that would be helpful for him.

Thank you! Missy

Insurance will not pay for the repair and he cannot afford the repair out of pocket (647 dollars) due to his very low income. Do you have any assistance you can provide so he can again have use of his motorized wheelchair for mobility.

Good evening,
My name is Raven Wilson. I’ve requested services through this program as an individual in the past, but I am currently reaching out in a different capacity.
I am the owner of a company that distributes secondhand assistive technology to the blind and visually impaired (among other services). We are AceIt Assistive Technology Services LLC, and you can learn more about us at https://aceitatservices.com.
I’m reaching out to various tech programs to see if there is any outdated or unused tech that is slated for disposal that could possibly be donated to my company. This would allow blind and visually impaired people to get the ntech they need while supporting our other services.
Please let me know if this is possible and if you have any questions.
Thanks in advance for your consideration.
Best,
Raven
