  • What's in a Name?

    It’s always exciting when someone gets a new communication device. It’s even more exciting when they have been waiting (because the old one broke). Yesterday, Corey brought me his brand new device to set up. He looked at the student that is working with me and said, “I’ve named this one ‘Sky.’” Corey’s last communication device was named ...
