Thank You to Canada Post!

Our great appreciation goes to Canada Post for their generous financial contribution to our project “Giving Every Child a Voice” to support the purchase and use of communication technology for our GRIT children and families! Their grant of $25,000 will be used to help develop, run and research a parent training program on the use of assistive communication devices so that every child has a voice!  Jennifer Schulmeister, Project Lead, is pictured with Sunny from our local Canada Post outlet where we visited to say “Thank you!”
