Help a Sister Out & Enter for a $35 Gift Card!

I know I don't reveal much about my personal life on my blog, but in order for you to understand the plea that follows I am going to open up a bit! For the past 5 years I have spent my life's work focused on students with autism. I am a school psychologist and soon to be Board Certified Behavior Analyst (sat for the exam in May and am on pins and needles waiting for my results), which has allowed me to work with students not only as a diagnostic clinician, but also as a provider of interventions. Therefore, I am often able to follow students from first diagnsosis through several years of treatment. Watching these students blossom is an amazing process and I feel fortunate that I am able to be a part of it!

Now here's where you come in ;) I have a great opportunity for you to support the autism community and help me win an iPad to use with my students. The iPad is not only a fantastic instructional tool for kids who are nonvocal and/or have strengths in visual processing, it also will be invaluable in collecting and graphing data on my students’ academic and behavioral progress. I simply need to sell any combination of 60 of the items pictured below.

How to participate:

• Place an order from the website (

• When you make your purchase you MUST put my first and last name (Heather Langknecht) in the section that says "Challenger's Name", otherwise I won’t receive credit & you won't be entered in the drawing :(

• After you place your order, come back here and post a comment telling me what you ordered and if/how your life has been touched by someone with autism.

• Once I cross-check your name with the orders you will be entered in a drawing for a $35 Amazon gift card (this could turn into a money maker for you!). I will announce the lucky winner on July 15.

The following are the only items from the site that count toward the challenge:

Thank you for your support!
