Tips for people who have AAC
Presented by Dale Gonelli
Join Dale for this 30 minute webinar about his lived experience learning of using AAC, including tips on what he's learnt over the years from other people. Dale will share personal experiences over the years and some funny stories as well.
Dale wants to present this webinar because he sees that people have ideas about best ways to teach AAC. Speech-language Pathologists are fantastic but they don’t live with the communication device.
Dale will be talking about his 10 tips for AAC, that will be helpful for families and professionals to hear.
Join Dale and AGOSCI for this AAC Awareness Month webinar!
