Soma's manual is now available

In case you haven't heard, Soma's long-awaited manual has recently been released and is available on Amazon. I just finished reading it and it's good to have this manual in our very small but growing collection of materials to help our kids learn to point and communicate. Hope everyone had a good Thanksgiving and best wishes to all, -Portia
