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 http://www.project-core.com 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 http://www.project-core.com/3d-symbols/.

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. http://www.project-core.com/3d-symbols-use/. What more could you ask for?


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