Episode Description:

Surviving Everyday talks with Kristi Peak-Oliveira of Massachusetts Easter Seals.

Kristi is a speech-language pathologist with over 20 years of experience in augmentative communication and has been with Easter Seals since 1999. She provides augmentative communication evaluation and consultation services for both children and adults in a variety of settings and does presentations for consumers, families and professionals. Kristi is a coordinator for two programs at Easter Seals: the Augmentative Communication Program, and the MassMATCH-sponsored Easter Seals Assistive Technology Regional Center (ATRC).

In this Surviving Everyday interview, Kristi reviews how Easter Seals diagnoses and provides assistive technology to help handicapped individuals communicate with the world around them.

Often working with school districts, she helps set up programs that can refer individuals to the Assistive Technology Regional Center (ATRC) where they can be matched with technology to assist in communicating, and also borrow the technology to ‘try it out’.
