Dear Project Core, I think I love you.

The Project Core website has a wealth of AAC information - training modules, downloadable communication boards, guidance for school districts and more. If you haven't checked it out, stop practicing TikTok dances and click here immediately!

The 3D tactile symbols on Project Core are incredibly cool and useful. Here's how I got started.

Step One - Find a 3D printer.

No problem, right? Wrong! I called a bunch of local print shops and none of them had a 3D printer or knew of anyone who had one. Rats!

Step Two - Reach out to the team.

I shared my plight and a colleague suggested that I ask the Technology and Engineering instructor in the local school district. Brilliant!

Step Three - Ask for help.

Beg this overworked teacher if she could pleeeeeease take on one more thing. The teacher I asked eagerly said YES!

Step Four - Email the files.

I emailed the teacher this link and let her know which symbols we needed

(Pic complements of, of course)

Step Five - Thank this teacher profusely.

What can I say? It's a pandemic and this teacher/saint/superhuman took time out of her already packed day to print the symbols. I was moved to tears. Angels do walk this earth.

Step Six - Get teaching!

Project Core even has teaching suggestions which you can print out and share with the team. What more could you ask for?

Have you tried Project Core? We'd love to hear from you!
