I was supposed to have three research sessions scheduled this evening, but the first two siblings had to cancel and reschedule. So, I only ended up having one participant tonight. The session went well. The small table and chairs were back for the computer so that was good news! The computer is still having glitches every once and awhile. I tested the computer out before my session and everything was working fine, sound/touch screen/tasks. But then, 20/30 minutes later when we sat down to do the tasks the sound wasn't working, so I ended up just saying "color"/"shape" out loud instead of the computer. Not sure if that data will actually be usable, but I had already gone through all of the directions for the task so I felt like we might as well keep going. Then, at the end of the session, we went back to the computer to repeat one of the tasks, and the sound was working again. So, all in all it was strange. I'm not sure what was going on with the sound there. When I left though, the computer and the sound were working fine again, so there isn't really anything to fix, hopefully it was just a random error. Other than the slight technology glitch the session went very smoothly!
