An Ohio judge required a man accused of harassing children with disabilities and their family for 15 years to spend a day sitting outside holding a sign declaring that he is a bully.

According to ABC News, the man feels this punishment was unfair. What do you think? Was his punishment too much or not enough? --> http://abcn.ws/P0QjQa

If your child is facing a bully, here are some resources that you can turn to for help. --> http://bit.ly/1jF6vSm

The Digital Access Project aims to help those who do not have the digital literacy skills they need to succeed and help them understand the relevance the Internet has in their lives. Whether it’s finding a job, helping their children complete homework for school or accessing e-commerce, electronic medical records and connecting with distant family, it is vital that we encourage every person and persons with a disability to take advantage of the tools they need to succeed.

About this community

A community where sharing knowledge about disabilities is key with a focus on adaptation, assistive technology and learning strategies.
 
I'm a speech and audio technologist.  Until recently I led a research project to produce more natural-sounding text-to-speech synthesis. Over five years, my team and I also developed a number of novel methods we thought could also be applied to assistive technologies. Long story short, the Government sequestration and shutdown caused our project to be cancelled.  On the bright side, we've started our own small gig and can actually focus on the assistive side of our passion. We have an SLP on the team, so I'm just trying to make more connections as we discover tech areas most in need of our gizmos.

Though I'm not a "speech and audio technologist", my speech synthesis hobby was initiated in 1983 when I was 13 years old. Nowadays, I'm focused on foreign language speech synthesizer development with the Tagalog language. It's extremely hard, but I'm building the World's First.
