A Big Day for Siraya

Birth To Three Logo
Today was a big day for Siraya in many ways…

Siraya is laughingSiraya is laughing

Firstly she graduated out of the Birth to Three system (we must have missed the cap and gown).  We’ll be sad to see the back of some tremendous people who have worked so hard to get Siraya as far she has come, especially Sue her PT/Case Manager.

Innovative uses for video conferencing

Driving back from a presentation in the Bronx, Richard and I had a fascinating conversation about how we could best use our resources and some interesting technologies we are seeing out there to provide even better support and training.

I was going to write a fascinating blog post on the subject.

But then I got stuck in traffic in Danbury again.

So you’ll have to make to do with this:

It’s funnier, and does, in fact, fit!

A Week Off Sick for Justin

If any of you have been unsuccessfully looking for me this week, I do apologize, but I have been stuck a home sick.

(So sick that this is the first time I have opened my computer!)

It seems like I am on the mend now so I hope to be back in fine fettle next week.  If there is anything you need urgently, please call the office or ask on live help and we’ll make sure we get you what you need.

After getting back late from UMass last night, Iona and I were up at the crack of dawn and heading back up I-91 into Massachusetts.  This time it was a for a FIRST Robotics competition.

This is a great time to get new team members involved and we have a nice group of freshmen joining the team who were all able to get a chance to operate the robot.

We’re already excited about the new game coming out in January and heading […]

It's all good, just a little bit nuts!

So, on the day that left last week, Diamond moved in, and Iona got back from her Most Excellent Adventure.

When I finally got back on Friday night after a few of my own adventures and some great training with the folks at ResCare in Fort Wayne, Indiana it was time to get settled in and get to know Diamond and the craziness that is having not only two 2 year olds, but 2 very unique 2 year olds at that!

Diamond just wants to be held all day, and given that Iona had very gallantly been filling that role all week, I spent most of the weekend with a wee girl […]
