Coolest Download EVER!
Today was Wednesday, so it was consultation day for me. That's when the queen of all things on the Spectrum, comes to visit me and make suggestions. I do so love it because a). I get to interact with an adult and b). Her wealth of knowledge is amazing. Toward the beginning of the year, I think she was worried that I would be offended by her suggestions until one day I told her, "Look, the only way I am going to get better at this is by having someone coach me. Any suggestions you make I will immediately carry out and be thankful for. I promise not to cry in your presence." Since that day, I have learned so, so much from her. Like today. She made a Power Card for me (not actually for me as I certainly don't have any behaviors that need to be modified, but as an example). It was Super Mario themed and totally awesome. I geeked out and was like, "How?" So she showed me the best program I have seen in a while (except for Boardmaker, of course). It is called Comic Life, and it can be used for so much more than Power Cards. So. Much. More. It has a 30-day free trial (which I am now on day 1 of). The great thing is, it only costs $25 to have it for your computer for all of time. So here's the link to what will prove to be invaluable in my world.
