Sam is easily distracted …. Let’s get an FM!
Austin’s mom brought in a prescription for an FM system …. Let’s get an FM!
Rachel’s Benchmark scores are really low …. Let’s get an FM!
Emily can’t focus to save her life …. Let’s get an FM!
We’ve tried everything and Josh is still a mess …. Let’s get an FM!
Natalie hit Sophia …. Let’s get an FM!
OK. What’s the Deal with FMs? They’re awesome They work really well for some kids They really don’t make a difference for others
How do I sign up for the “awesome” experience? Complete an AT Consideration Guide Student has a hearing loss? Send to Julie Johnston at Live Oak with a copy of the audiogram Student does not have a hearing loss? Send to Viki Johnson at Deep Wood and Julie Johnston at Live Oak
AT Consideration Guide Identify specific areas you want to target with the use of the FM system These targeted areas will be revisited at the end of a thirty day trial
