I Declare This AAC Device Back Up Week!

USB flash drive with 1 GB capacity.Image via WikipediaThis morning we were setting up for the day and as we fired up one young lady's Dynavox DV4 we discovered everything on it was gone. Poof! Hundreds of hours of work by the SLP, dozens of hours of work by me, all of it gone. I spent almost an hour on the phone with Dynavox tech support and managed to get back most of it. There will still be weeks and weeks of reprogramming, but we were lucky and we know it.

Therefore I am calling all of us out there - teachers, SLPs, parents, users - to back up AAC devices this week. Take the time to save all your hard work just in case something goes wrong!

Back Up Directions
Please comment if you have the link to directions to back up a device from another vendor.
