I love this community of parents who have connected on Instagram to support each other and advocate for access to robust AAC regardless of age or abilities 💕
Please consider making a donation to help fund an iPad with an AAC app for kids on their waiting list. See details on their website: https://lillysvoice.wixsite.com/lillysvoice

7/25/21 - Hot off the presses…. I made and donated a visual guide for getting started on Proloquo2Go for Lilly’s Voice to give to parents to help them get their child’s AAC app set up. Many of them don’t have an SLP to help them. Made my heart happy to be able to create this for them 💕
I’m going to do my part by creating some content on my TPT store that will be a fundraiser. Proceeds from that will be split between Lilly’s Voice and Ability Connection Oklahoma – New Voices (a local grant in my state).
Update 7/26/21: The fundraising TPT product is now available: https://omazingkidsllc.com/2021/07/26/proloquo2go-a-visual-guide-to-getting-started-tpt-product-fundraiser-for-lillys-voice-ability-connection-oklahoma-new-voices/
Ability Connection Oklahoma – New Voices grant
Did you know that you can also support charities that provide AAC grants by designating them as your charity of choice while shopping on Amazon’s Amazon Smile program? Many of us are shopping on Amazon a lot in the midst of the pandemic. It doesn’t cost anything extra to shop through Amazon Smile and it supports great charities like this one: smile.amazon.com/ch/73-0795371 (Ability Connection Oklahoma has a New Voices AAC grant that has provided lots of kids with an iPad, robust AAC app, durable case, and accessories like a carrying strap, Bluetooth speaker, screen protector, etc..)
You can look through the charity options to see what may be applicable to your state.
I’m not affiliated with Lilly’s Voice or Ability Connection Oklahoma…. but I’m a huge fan of both and am doing my part to help spread the word to help their fundraising efforts 😊
