I don’t know if everyone knows the full story, but a few months ago, 12 to be exact, I embarked on a new venture with an amazing team. As a special education teacher, I noticed long ago that there was something missing when it came to technology for children that are non-verbal. Programs were often hacked and revised by parents thirsty for the right technology for their children that are often diagnosed with learning disabilities. Despite the best efforts, something was missing.
I wasn’t the only one to notice this. In fact, a long time friend of mine and successful gamer, Kim and his colleague Stian noticed that the apps designed for children of special needs were no where near as sophisticated as those games made for children without learning differences. It was around that time that Kim was approached by a friend of his named Roald. Nine years ago Roald’s wife gave birth to a wonderful, amazing baby girl who was diagnosed with autism. I don’t know what most parents would do in the situation – but what Roald did was exceptional – he gave up his profession as a sports agent and went on to become a scientist examining the issues that his non-verbal daughter faces on a daily basis. When the 4 of us met we knew we had the makings of something special. Hence Superplus was born.
So here we are. SuperSpeak is in Beta and ready to be tested. We should be all set right? We’ve got an educator, a scientist and a two genius game developers. Surprisingly, the answer is NO!
Something was missing AND THAT IS YOU! We need YOU to be our fifth founder.
What are we asking? We are calling on you, as a family member, educator, friend, counselor, neighbor…what have you… to download SuperSpeak and give us your opinion. You are the ones on the front lines, every day, working with a child who as learning differences. You are the ones who can tell us what works best for your ‘SuperKiddo.’ What resonates with them and what doesn’t? What do they like and what do they not like? What are their milestones and when have you met them? YOUR experience is just as important as my years in the field, Roald’s discoveries at Yale University and Kim and Stians’s amazing success in the gaming world. You are the champion for your SuperKiddo and we need your feedback, via our survey, to create a holistic app that will help non-verbal children. YOU will be our final partner. We can’t be successful as a company until our fifth partner is active and on board.
In the appreciation of your time and your efforts, after you download SuperSpeak and answer our survey, you will be entered for a chance to win a prize. We are a small, stealthy and focused company, and this is just a small token of our appreciation. We will also gift you SuperSpeak for a year. Again, small gestures, but we, as a company, and you, as a person who knows a non-verbal child, have bigger goals that go beyond freebies. That said, it is a pretty cool prize, click here to get set up.
That is it. That’s our call to you. Partner with us to create something that will improve children’s’ lives. Together we will help children be happier and healthier! We can do this – we can make something special – but only if we do it together.
