Video of the Week: AAC 101 for First Responders

There is no doubt that people with AAC needs are incredibly vulnerable in emergency and crime-related situations. In today‚Äôs featured video, SLPs Sarah Mankey and Mariesa Rang discuss ways they address this issue proactively and provided free training to firefighters and law enforcement officers in their community. In addition to introducing them to basic concepts in AAC, first responders learned how to communicate with people who use AAC and worked through real-life scenarios. Kudos to these professionals for this important work and to USSAAC and ISAAC for making this video available.   Direct Link to Video – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1wuZGcyt-EY
