If you know of Brenda and my work over the past 3 years, you know that we have been working toward the goal of the first-ever feeling-based language formulating app that will help people suffering from speech-related disabilities share their innermost needs and concerns.
Thanks to our dear friend and colleague, ASHA Fellow Dr. Jean Blosser, CCC-SLP, Ed.D., we are making serious inroads with University of South Florida’s College of Behavioral Sciences.
We are finalizing plans to have Bridges App used as the subject of a Master’s Thesis by a student in their Applied Behavior Analysis Program. In addition, we have begun to work with USF Department and Computer Science/Engineering toward a cooperative venture in their I-Corps Program.
Still have a ways to go till the app is fully viable and functional in all the unique areas we intend to address.
