Through the dedicated work of the CSIU team, Ashley was given the opportunity to find the communication device that best fit her needs.
We were challenged because we knew that we had to capture the magic of ACES Day and bring it home to the special children of CSIU.
Eight to nine months before the event, an invitation list was compiled from a master list of all the students who use alternative communication in the CSIU region.
Games: Because the students attending CC Day would have differing abilities, games that could be played by everyone were chosen with the help of occupational therapists from CSIU. Some of the games we chose were golf, ring toss, balance beam, sponge toss, jump in the balls, and other types of activities.
Several members of the planning committee, which included CSIU speech therapists, established a vocabulary to be given to parents about a month prior to the event.
