Rompiendo Barreras (Breaking Barriers)

This video was sent to me by Celia Mari, from "Juegos de Atencion Temprana", a special education/assistive technology blog much like this one in Spanish.  Celia didn't know much about the video except that it was part of a contest.  I think it is a wonderful "AT in Any Language" statement.

(Also I love that we see all the same tools we use here from Step-by-Steps to Big Macs and the Alphasmart.  The Alphasmart is a nice reminder that a tool that is considered out-of-date is still so powerful and useful - it is the communication that matters not the tool being used to communicate.)


  1. Reminds me of the work our Foundation does with MSE's. We are sponsoring an upcoming conference.

    Reason #2 for Attending The Conference on helping individuals with special needs: The Orchid Hypothesis

    The Hidden Angel Foundation is proud to announce a key note speaker: David Dobbs

    The well known science journalist David Dobbs is the author of several books and a reporter for such publications as the New York Times Magazine, Atlantic Monthly, Slate, and National Geographic will talk about his most recent and highly regarded work titled “The Orchid and the Dandelion”.

    The Orchid Hypothesis is best described by Dobbs as the belief that most of us have a genetic composition like a dandelion; hardy and adaptable and able to survive wherever we take root. Then there are those that are more fragile, like an orchid. They too are able to thrive and bloom but require more attention and special care. Dobbs originally wrote about his theory in the December, 2009 issue of The Atlantic in an article called The Science of Success.
    Our “Hidden Angels” are orchids and we believe multi-sensory stimulation as part of their environment is key to their ability to thrive.
