I write this column from Merida, Mexico, at surely the hottest time of the year to go to the tropics. Accompanying me are four graduate students at Ohio State University (Katherine Glenn-Applegate, early childhood education; Jaclyn Dynia and Jill Pentimonti, reading and literacy; and Amy Pratt, foreign/second language education) and two speech-language pathology colleagues (Joan Kaderavek from the University of Toledo and Amy Livingston of EBS Healthcare). We are here for 1 week collaborating with the staff of a nonprofit school that serves children ages 2 to 21 with significant disabilities who are not able to participate in the regular schooling system. Our team will engage in a number of activities that include working side by side with school staff to assess children directly; sharing ideas on therapeutic techniques for individual children; providing the school with material resources, including augmentative and alternative communication devices, tests, and about 200 children’s books we collected in a book drive; and delivering a 2-day workshop on intervention techniques. Our work is solely volunteer and is made possible through university support and private contributions.
