Global Day of AAC
“If I am not for myself, then who will be for me? And if I am only for myself, then what am I? And if not now, when?” (Rabbi Hillel)
Join the 4th Annual 24-Hour Global AAC Chat tomorrow, which starts tomorrow October 17 at 8:00 am (Eastern Time, USA) and runs until Thursday morning. The AAC Chat will continue nonstop for 24 hours on Skype, Facebook, and Twitter.
Judy Bailey and Justin Bergers have organized this year’s event. Join people from around the globe in a chat session, by tweeting, or posting to a web page. Share information and resources. Share a story, ask a question, or encourage someone on their AAC journey. Make new friends. Connect with others.
Everyone with an interest in AAC is welcome.
Here’s how you can support this effort:
- Skype: Send your Skype name to firstname.lastname@example.org or contact Judy Bailey directly (via Skype at judy.bailey3) to be added to the chat.
- Facebook: Go to the International AAC Awareness Month page and post a comment, favorite link, photo or resource. Or just stop by to say hello.
- Listen: Justin Bergers will be providing music on his radio server during the 24-Hour event. You can tune in online at http://vrnw.org:8000/jberger801.m3u’
- If there a song that relates to communication, rights, relationships, belonging, connecting, listening, being heard, inclusion, or some other topic that has special meaning for you, let Justin know and he will do his best to play it. You can send requests to him up until 10:00 pm on Wednesday (dj-justin[at]rockeymouuntainradio.allalla.com).
The purpose of this global event is to get as many people as possible talking and sharing about AAC, supporting one another, and and figuring out ways to bring effective communication to all who need it.
