Building Blocks is excited to announce a partnership with HSC Pediatric Center, a pediatric hospital in NE Washington DC.  HSC has an assistive technology team that specializes in evaluations for communication devices, along with other adaptive equipment. They are looking to expand into the Northern Virginia region and have partnered with Building Blocks Therapy.  We are looking forward to this collaboration, as our therapists regularly work with children who are using a communication device. Our challenge has always been finding an evaluation team that would assess and recommend a device within a timely manner. By sharing space, we will have easy access to technical support if needed, and the evaluation team will be able to directly communicate with the treating therapist. If you have been thinking about an assistive technology evaluation, please talk to your therapist!
