AAC Learning at ASHA 2016: Day 1

Thanks to all the AAC session presenters who shared their valuable expertise with the rest of us. Please note that these session handouts may be available for only a brief period of time.
Edited: Having trouble accessing the handouts using the conference link? Here’s a file where you can get those all in one place (if it seems small when you first open in, set the Adobe Reader view pane to 100%).
