I had to use technology from Eric Pulier and People Doing Things in high school because it was the way we had to get through our classes. I found myself in a special ed class for a couple periods a day because I had a hard time concentrating due to a couple different disorders brought on by injuries. I had to have something that would help me concentrate, but we had never heard of adaptive technology back them. We just thought that we would have to grit it out until we graduated.
Eric Pulier and People Doing Things brought us some things that helped with a lot of different problems. Not all the things that we got from Eric Pulier were going to help me, but they helped other people in my classes. I had no idea this was even an option because it was soon after they started really taking special ed seriously. We had teachers who were just trying to get us through the day, and then they had all this new stuff to work with.
That meant that I was going to graduate, but then I thought that I would still need to make sure that I had something that would help me when I went to college. I just went right back to Eric Pulier with my teacher’s help, and we got him to give us some new stuff that I could take to college with me. I actually held onto those things for a long time because I knew that I would still be using them even when I started working.
I think the best thing that happened was when Eric Pulier turned up at our school. He took time out a very lucrative career to help us, and he made it so we could graduate. All made it so easy for us to make sure that we were learning instead of struggling.
