Holiday Gift Edition of AT Blog Carnival

Welcome to the Holiday Edition of the AT Blog Carnival: "My Favorite Things"
This month blog authors are sharing their favorite AT tools and holiday gift giving ideas for assistive technology.
I am proud to present to you some wonderful posts by some wonderful bloggers in the AT world. I would encourage you to not only look through the great ideas they have presented for holiday gift ideas, but to mark their blogs on your favorites or subscribe to their feeds. You will get great ideas from them all year long.
I have put a little comment on each submission so you get a little taste of what they are about. We have all kinds of cool gadgets and ideas for you so if you are still looking for that special gift, maybe this will give you some ideas. When it comes to foks with special needs - it is nice to be able to give them something that they can use and that will really be a blessing and a support for them through coming year .
Sometimes we forget about what toys are appropriate for orthopedically impaired children. I have worked with many small preschool children who couldn't hold a doll or a car. My post at the bottom shares some fun switch access toys for them.
So read on and enjoy the creative ideas below, and...
Happy Holdays!

Brian Friedlander Ph.D. of Assitivetek contributes the Livescribe Pulse Pen. Here is a link on how to use it from his blog:

Ira Socol of SpeEd Change contributes some gift ideas in price ranges:

Merry Christmas!

Hi, my name is Lydia and I work for - a website specializing in AT products. I looked through your wish list and found that Alicia Odom is looking for a Little Step by Step Communicator Switch. We actually have a gently used one that I would like to donate to her, but I am having trouble posting a comment on her blog, and I can't find her email address anywhere on her site. Alicia - if you read this please email me at if you are interesting in this switch. If anyone at AtBlogCarnival or anyone who reads this post is in contact with Alicia, please ask her to get in touch with me if she'd like us to send that switch. Thanks!

I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.
