March 7, 2020: City of Austin Cancels SXSW March Events
The City of Austin has canceled the March dates for SXSW and SXSW EDU. AmplioSpeech will faithfully follow the City’s directions and won’t be presenting.
ROCKVILLE, MARYLAND, MARCH 7, 2020/AmplioSpeech/ — Austin city officials have canceled the South by Southwest arts and technology festival.
Mayor Steve Adler announced a local disaster as a precaution because of the threat of the novel coronavirus, effectively canceling the annual event.
AmplioSpeech is leading the Digital Speech-Language Therapy revolution, focusing on boosting clinical and academic outcomes for K-12 students.
AmplioSpeech should have been presenting in the Start-Up Village compound and one of the sessions in the SXSW EDU event, hosted by AmplioSpeech Founder & CEO, Dr. Yair Shapira. Titled “Focus on Outcomes: Digital Speech-Language Therapy”, Dr. Shapira’s session should have presented the hardcore of AmplioSpeech technology – artificial intelligence (AI) in speech-language pathology.
AmplioSpeech innovative therapy is powered by an award-winning technology, delivered by licensed Speech-Language Pathologists (SLPs). For the first time in the history of speech-language therapy, AmplioSpeech integrates artificial intelligence (AI) in its core, in order to treat speech-language deficits, dramatically accelerating progress towards goals, while guaranteeing IDEA compliance, and empowering SLPs to become intervention leaders and clinical decision-makers. By streamlining validated intervention protocols, continuous progress monitoring, IEP compliance assurance, assignment completion, smart reports, automated measurement of SLQs (Speech-Language Qualities) and additional advanced technologies – AmplioSpeech created a revolutionary service delivery model.
“We are devastated to share this news with you,” says SXSW organizers. “’The show must go on’ is in our DNA, and this is the first time in 34 years that the March event will not take place. We are now working through the ramifications of this unprecedented situation.”
