The AiA team, at Nick’s direction, would like you to know that he recently disappeared for a small medical issue, but has returned in true style like the superhero he is!  There’s only one thing to do when you disappear ….

In keeping with the push of information, Nick found two pieces of information today while checking messages and getting back up to speed on work life.

worldcpday2016The first piece of new information is that yesterday was what an emerging group of activists call World CP Day .  We are learning more about this movement and if you click the blue words back there, you can learn also!

The second piece of new information coming in to the AiA office is more of a reminder that the new NBC show Speechless looks really hilarious!!

The show premiered Wednesday, September 21st.  Check out the trailer!! (yep, click those blue words).   Nick thinks she really rocks those booties.

Good Work, Jessica Sorgani!

Not only does Jessica Sorgani touch many children’s lives as a speech therapist in a local elementary school, but she has also proven herself to be a friend and advocate to Nick and Awesome in Action. Jessica’s quiet and fun-loving demeanor is contagious, and Nick loves working with her in all capacities. As an experienced speech language pathologist, Jessica is very knowledgeable of Nick’s speech device, as well as communication in general. Lucky for us, Jessica has put this skill to work in order to help further the message of acceptance and inclusion that Awesome in Action shares with students throughout Northern Colorado. She helped Nick connect with many teachers in order to set up a presentation in the school where she works. This process can be tedious, but Jessica did not give in. She communicated over a course of a couple months with Nick and the team of teachers in order to coordinate a date for the presentation. As a result, Nick has met a fun new group people who truly care about expanding knowledge beyond the classroom for their students. Nick is very proud to know such a dedicated and driven Speech Language Pathologist! Thank you, Jessica, for being an Awesome Advocate!
