Hi everyone,

I’ve decided to extend the giveaway until Monday Dec 20th. We’ve been so sick with a stomach bug that I haven’t had a chance to count all of the entries, create the entries, and set up the actual drawing.

Good news for you though! More time to submit more entries!

I can’t express how grateful I am for the amazing response we’ve had thus far. We have some INCREDIBLE ideas and we already made a few boards out of the ideas and Nathan is LOVING all of the new ways to talk and play and learn! THANK YOU so much to everyone who has participated thus far.

When the contest is finished I am planning on creating a page with all of the ideas so other families can also use them for their kids who have communication devices. Eventually I plan on sharing Nathan’s user file for other Dynavox users to simply import, and videos of how we implemented these ideas.

Please continue to think of ideas, your creativity will benefit many children!

The drawing will happen Monday Dec 20th at 5 pm PST. I will email everyone who commented with the URL to view our live webcam. The winner will be contacted Monday night and I will mail out the Xbox with Kinect right away so the winner gets it before Christmas!


  1. I was wondering how you were going to do it with everyone being sick. I can’t think of any more ideas, I think I’ve sumitted about 15. I’ll keep sharing

  2. LOL entry– whining–‘
    I don’t want to go to bed now-no
    I am not eating that
    What smells?
    I am wet/dirty
    just kidding hope you feel better

  3. I really appreciate all the awesome ideas your getting. I’ve read thru them several times and added several things to Cody’s PODD. The system we are using is an auditory scan book with some pull off CVI friendly pictures….so these awesome board ideas can even benefit those not using a electronic device yet. AAC is so hard for me to accept and be consistant at. But just this week Cody used his PODD to tell me he had something to say. That he was all done playing with a toy. That he wanted someone to sit and talk with him. That he was tired and later the same day he asked me for help three times when he wanted me to help him pop some packing bubbles. He was so excited to be understood. So worth all the extra effort!

    Glad everyone is on the mend too 🙂

  4. Marcela,

    You are so amazing. This is an outstanding idea. Once again you are thinking of others. I hope all these ideas benefit Nathan and many more families. I am off as of the 23rd and don’t go back to work till the 3rd. If you are around lets get together.
