D. Anecdote

Assistive technology often unlocks unknown potential, which is exactly what happened when Cutler received his device through the ATR Program. Cutler quickly learned how to independently navigate his device installed with the Prologue2Go app and wasted no time adding phrases to more completely, effectively and robustly help him express his thoughts. Shortly after he obtained his device, it was realized he is a willing and capable writer who is no completing worksheets he previously didn't do and proudly displaying his work along with his classmates' in the hallway. Cutler's parents and his educators report that he made gains this year that would not have been possible without this assistive technology.
