Connecticut Special Needs Networking site

ProLoQuo2Go – AAC Software/App

This is an app for facilitating communication for non-verbal or speech challenged individuals.  It sees a lot of use on the Apple devices, but may at this time be available for other maker’s devices as well.  Since we do not use this anymore I haven’t kept up with it development.

Nicole Rivera – Creative Solutions For All Abilities

Nicole Rivera is a great resource for ABA services!  Nicole brings energy, warmth and creativity when it comes to providing your child with ABA services. My son, Christopher, has a hard time focusing, yet when Nicole worked with him he was a different kid.  Not only was he attending better, but he was truly engaged.  He enjoyed the activities and he looked forward to Nicole’s visits even though she was making him work. I highly recommend Nicole and her company.

We’ve had experience with area GI Doctors and while none of them were bad, Dr. Escalara just happens to be especially good.  She has a direct, no-nonsense approach yet delivers service with a warmth I can only liken to a longtime friend.
