AAC Talks 2023 - AAC Unleashed: Empowering Diverse Communicators
May 12, 2023

Join us for our fifth annual AAC Talks web conference designed to provide practical ideas, strategies, and resources for making connections and engaging students with complex communication needs. This year’s theme, the AAC Unleashed: Empowering Diverse Learners, is meant to inspire participants to consider creative solutions and new ways of thinking about AT implementation that reflect the many aspects of diversity represented by our students who use augmentative-alternative communication systems. National and local presenters will discuss a variety of topics including the importance of person-centered practices honoring the uniqueness of individuals, how a variety of communication partners can be empowered to support the use of a range of communication methods, principles of a culturally and linguistically affirming approach to AAC, and practical ideas on how to develop and implement lessons that include a variety of AAC strategies and devices.
