Happy AAC Family Friday, everyone!
I received a smaller crop of pictures this week (I blame myself for forgetting to promote it until Thursday morning---oops!) . . . but the ones that were sent it are fabulous :)
For next week, a theme: let's get a big post next Friday filled with our AAC users out and about. Your mission this week is to get a picture of AAC use outside of the home. Send your pictures to firstname.lastname@example.org (and I promise to remind you guys on FB before Thursday).
Without further ado:
We were out on the weekend here in London and took this picture of Cady with her talker in a greenhouse. She was using it to tell me the colours of the different flowers we were looking at.
Chatting with PODD. Anna 8 years old with Angelman Syndrome and we live in The Netherlands. Since May we use also the Compass app and I just love that our house is not so quite anymore.
Tia Sara has undiagnosed nevro- muscular genetical condition (probably Mitochondrial disease). She in 9,5 years old, and is using head switches with computer (SD) and iPad (app Go Talk NOW). This picture is Tia Sara choosing what she wants to do. We are from Slovenia (Europe) where aac community isn't very large.
