Schuyler is my weird and wonderful monster-slayer. Together we have many adventures.
Hot pink! My very favourite shade of pink (and one of my favourite colours in general)!Yay for early delivery!
You might want to cover it with plastic before she sees it. I would imagine that getting exploded head out of the machine would be a challenge.
Sweeeeeet.Cover it with blue first. When she removes it, the contrast will be even more jarring, thus exacerbating the extent of the cranial explosion.
Wow! How exciting, how pink! I am truly looking forward to reading about Schuyler's reaction to her new machine.
WOW!!! That is pink-a-licious!! Super sweet!!! She will want neon pink hair to match, you know!
That is just frik'n awesome Rob... WOW!
I am SO excited for her!!! I feel like it's Christmas Eve, or the day before your birthday.
AWESOME! Now good luck transferring all her settings and stuff. XD
That's some monster-slaying pink going on right there.
That is so very cool. It resembles my beloved childhood Etch-A-Sketch! I'll be checking back constantly to read about Schuyler's reaction when she sees it!!
Wow you got that fast!!! well fast as it goes for these types of things!! And what a beautiful pink it is!!!!
Wowza! I kindly request a video demo of Schuyler and her new Bubblicious BOW. So fun.
as a fellow pink lover, I'm so psyched for her!!! And I'm psyched, of course, for your family...that's she getting a better (?) device.
Hey Rob, I love the pink... I'm currently reading your book and love it. Plus the blog is great. My daughter just got diagnosed with PMG at 13 months. I've struggled with the diagnosis but reading Schuyler's story has really helped me come to terms. So far Keziah's biggest symptom is left sided hemiparesis (her pmg is unilateral affecting the the right side). Anyway thanks for being open and honest. Lately I've felt like life truly sucks... but I too believe in my daughter and I'm not going to let the Monster win :)
Totally Awesome. Sure to brighten her day.
so awesome. great photos and yay for Schuyler. and for you.
Let's see how it takes before she figures out all the advanced functions!
I seriously think that PRC going colorful was one of their better additions to make children WANT to use the devices. We had one of those old ugly fgray Vantages, and it hardly ever got used. Enter one sky blue Eco, and the addition of a computer and the internet, and it hardly goes a few hours without being used. I am happy for Schuyler and hope she gets more use out of it than the gray one!
That's awesome!! Can she blog from this one too? You could maybe look at like setting her up an utterli account... that would be awesome!
That's so cool! I'm now tempted to buy a Big Box Of Words to match my pink digital camera and iPod.(Put those on your wish list for Daddy, Schuyler!) In all seriousness, I'm happy to hear that Schuyler has her new BBOW, and I'm looking forward to reading how it works for her.
This is awesome all the way around! The color is RAD and the new features sound like they'll be fun for her to figure out. Yay!
Awesome monster slayer princess pink!!
Rob, that's really cool and PINK! Is P-R or any other company that's in the BBoW-biz planning on making a device that's smaller? I know that lots of kids need the large size due to lack of fine motor skills and I assume the larger screen size is important when learning how to use a device and being able to see the various trees of choices is also a good thing initially. But for kids (and I'm not sure if Schuyler fits into this demographic) with decent fine motor skills and who have really learned to navigate the UI, wouldn't a smaller device encourage use? You know, something more iPod sized?Just curious.

You know, something more iPod sized?There are some smart folks already developing stuff like this for the iPod Touch and iPhone, although nothing that I know of that runs the specific language Schuyler uses. Her screen utilizes 84 keys on any given directory, and they all sort of lead to specific places, so it would be hard to make them much smaller.Also, to be honest, the number of ambulatory kids like Schuyler who use AAC devices are vastly outnumbered by the ones with limiting physical impairments, so I'm not sure how much of a priority making an actual device itself would be.I do predict, however, that while the display probably won't get much smaller, the device itself will continue to get thinner and lighter and, well, cooler.
Yes! That's wonderful.Colour is so important for kids.. I remember 11 years ago when I got my first wheelchair I didn't want to use it- I'm embarassed now by how I carried on when they tried to put me into it(I was 3, but thats no excuse). It, however, was just a loaner- and my new one was fire-engine red! My next wheelchair was purple, and my worker and I decorated my canes with patterns made of nail polish. These things are so simple, but they make a big difference in how a kid feels about themselves.Congratulations, Schuyler!
Congrats on the new pink BOW. I was curious as to what happens now to the old one? Do you give it back, do they fix it up and donate it?
