Giveaway to know about - Xbox with Kinect

Emma isn't talking yet and we are working hard on giving her a voice.  We are working with Emma's therapists and using an iPad, some PECS and switches and I am finding it very challenging (and exhausting!).  I know other parents are in similar situations - where we as parents are desperate to give our child a voice - and it is from those parents that I get some great, real-life ways to get the best bang for our efforts with operation give Emma a voice.

One family I've been following on the blogosphere for a while is Nathan's family.  I have to say, this is one amazing little boy!  Like Emma, he is not verbal right now but making great strides in communicating with a communication device (Nathan is using a Dynavox with eye gaze).  Right now his wonderful mom Marcela is soliciting ideas for what to program into Nathan's communication device.

I have to say that I'm so excited about this because the ideas she is getting are giving me some ideas to use with Emma.  The other reason I'm excited is that for each idea submitted you are entered in a drawing to win an Xbox with Kinect.  I know Chris would be over the moon if he was to get an Xbox under the tree this year from Nathan.

So, click here and go over to to find out more about the contest and submit your ideas.  And, if you win the Xbox and are looking for a good home for it feel free to send it our way :-)
