I began this playlist to help parents and educators help AAC users communicate more effectively and support communication in the most efficient way possible. I have been a speech language pathologist since 2002 and have been working in a field of Augmentative and Alternative Communication since being a graduate student in 1999 at Teachers College, Columbia University.
AAC is one of my passions and my love for this field has only grown over the years. Part of what I love about being with a speech language pathologist is working with families and training others in the field of AAC.
These videos began as an Assistive Technology Project that I was working on during my assistive technology certificate program with Bowling Green University. At the same time, I was also virtually training parents of AAC users with my colleague during the pandemic.
How can we describe these strategies in a fun and visual way that can begin some meaningful discussions? Creating videos with Powtoons became a passion of mine!
I hope you enjoy these videos and share with others!
