This full-day workshop will begin with ensuring communication access is woven throughout everyday activities while modeling and practicing with partners using Rett University’s 4-Grid Communication Book and Tobii Dynavox’s SonoPrimo, soft-tech language grids.

Later in the day, we will address the academic skills of reading and writing for students with complex needs that are often thought to be impossible for individuals with Rett Syndrome and other complex disabilities. The strategies and techniques that have been developed and used with students worldwide are proven to get kids actively participating in reading and writing. Techniques for reading to and with kiddos while modeling communication will be demonstrated in videos and then put into practice during the workshop. Participants will actively use ABC and Core Word Communication Flipbooks to build a short story with a partner, focusing on understanding and improving upon the interaction needed to cultivate solid communication and educational exchanges.

This just in, the research portion of our Power of Your Gift campaign is here. Read the full newsletter at this link: Power of Your Research! We continue our Power of Your Gift theme at the end of the year with our message here that is focused on research.

Our partners at Rett Syndrome Research Trust (RSRT) continue to lead the worldwide community in pursuit of advanced, cure-focused research projects for Rett Syndrome and other MECP2-related disorders, and we are in the battle together! We are grateful that 2018 has been a breakthrough year for Rett research.

The Novartis-AveXis merger has brought the prospect of human gene therapy trials on the near-term horizon, as well as advances in MECP2 reactivation, RNA modification and protein replacement research initiatives.

There is so much promise, and GP2C support of these RSRT programs is critical. To date, GP2C has funded over $1.55M of this exciting and necessary research through the Rett Syndrome Research Trust!

Happy Holidays,
The GP2C Team

Tonite! Judy Lariviere explores the critical topic of fun & leisure for our kiddos and our families. There's still time to sign up:

5:30 – 6:30 PM PACIFIC⠀
7:30 - 8:30 PM CENTRAL⠀
8:30 – 9:30 PM EASTERN⠀

As a parent, do you often wish that you had more ways for your son or daughter to engage in play or leisure activities on their own or with you, siblings, friends and/or relatives? Would you love for your son or daughter to have more independent control over toys, games, or other everyday activities rather than always relying on hand-over-hand support? If you answered yes to one or both of these questions, then this is the webinar for you!⠀

In this live webinar, you will be inspired as you learn about new tools and strategies you can use to give your son or daughter increased independence in activities including, but not limited to, reading/listening to books, arts and crafts, taking photos, mealtime preparations, games, etc. Strategies for supporting quick and easy set-up will also be outlined so you can have other family members or caregivers set things up for your son or daughter. A few of the activities presented involve the use of Tobii Dynavox’s Communicator 5 through touch screen or eye gaze technology. Others include web-based games, which can be accessed through a single switch or eye gaze technology. Although you will walk away from this webinar with many ideas, you will be sure to find one that will be the easiest or most fun to introduce to your son or daughter. A resource list with links to toys and tools will be included in the course.

This live webinar will have a format of a 45-minute presentation followed by questions from participants for the rest of the hour or so.

Just a little reminder about Rett Mom and Warrior from California, Malin Delling’s Rett University blog via the wonderful Tobii Dynavox:"A little while ago, the greatest thing happened. We brought the wagon with Lily and her Tobii to our dog park and she made a new friend all by herself - by talking to him." Read this inspiring story by Rett Mom Malin Delling

Thanks, Rett University, for sharing this story with us!
