AAC Goes to the Eddies!.

A strange thing happened while we were busy thinking and writing about AAC. Two strange things, actually. First, we got nominated for the 2013 Edublog Awards by fellow SLP bloggers. (Many thanks to those who put our name into the hat in the Individual Blog and Resource Sharing categories.) Then, we became finalists. Not too shabby for a low incidence topic like AAC!

The cool thing about these nominations is that it is yet another way to raise awareness about AAC. It must be working because we’re hearing from AAC Goes to the Eddies!professionals who are curious about what AAC is and how it relates to their area of interest, language.

There are many deserving nominees in both categories. We listed our nominees here. Take a moment to vote for your favorites. They are ALL winners!

    Awesome news and very well deserved. You do an amazing job with PrAACtical AAC both in sharing resources and in raising the profile of our area. Thank-you both so much!

      Thank you, Jane! Voting is open through Dec 18th. Even if we don’t get many votes, we are so appreciative of the opportunity to put AAC in front of general educators, school administrators, and our colleagues who may not be that well-versed in the area of augmentative communication. Every little bit of awareness building helps! Can blogs and other social media help us accelerate the pace of change? We think so. 🙂

        Absolutely! I constantly meet people who have become more aware of good practice in AAC or aspects of AAC through your blog. People who otherwise wouldn’t have had access to that information. Blogging is very powerful 🙂

          Thank you for that feedback, Jane. I think the casual style of blogging can make the information more palatable. It’s hard to sit down with a scholarly book or article at the end of a long day but getting through some blog posts is usually manageable. It is great to see more bloggers out there writing about AAC-related topics.
