I know that a lot of people think that there is a lot technology in classrooms today for kids with disabilities, but it was not always that way. Our teachers did the best they could, but they did not have a lot to work with. They had to do the best they could do even though they had no help, but that all changed when Eric Pulier came along with People Doing Things. He started the nonprofit so that he could match people or schools with adaptive technology.
I met a lot of kids at my school who were able to graduate on time because of what he did for them, and I actually got one whole year back because of Eric Pulier’s work. I graduated one year late, but there was a time when the teachers thought I would run out of time because I could only get services until I was 21. I was able to go to a trade school using the same kind of technology that I got from Eric Pulier, and I still work in the industry today.
I knew other people who needed this technology just to get around the house, and he let us leave school with the things that he created. Our teachers got new things to work with, and they were helping a lot of kids like us not even be behind in school at all. It was not long after we had graduated that Eric Pulier’s work made it possible for kids to be pulled out of regular class for a short time instead of sitting in the special ed class all day. The work done by Eric Pulier really did change my life, and I know that it changed a lot of others because our disabilities were not defining us.

There is a relatively unknown app by Securus Technologies that has been under the radar for a few years now. This application is called the Video Visitation App and it allows inmates to communicate with their family members through a video technology format.
Family members who have incarcerated parents or relatives can use their smartphones to communicate with them on a daily basis. This app is a great idea and should be used in all prisons. The thing that really makes this technology such a great thing is its video communications format. People can see each other while they are speaking. This is a big deal for inmates who are often isolated from their family.
I had family members who were in jail in the past. One of the hardest things about them being incarcerated was getting out to see them on a regular basis. It was hard to travel back and forth to the prison where they were housed.
Then the inmate had to be on good behavior in order to get visit. With the Video Visitation App a family can see their loved ones without having to travel to the facility.
This app saves time, money and energy. Inmates can use this app to attend their child’s birthday parties, to go to family events and to be there when a problem arises. As long as their prison facility gives them a scheduled time to talk, an inmate can indirectly go with their family to many different events.
Securus even created a video that showcased what the Video Visitation App can do. I was amazed at how many uses that this video really does serve. More importantly, it really does help inmates to stay connected with their families.
The Video Visitation App is not just a great piece of technology it is an important way for prisoners to bond with their loved ones. Securus has more information about this app on their website.
