Video of the Week: A Recipe for Summer AAC

Here in the US, we still have a few weeks of summer left and that gives us an opportunity to squeeze in a little more AAC.  For today’s video, we turn to the Pacer Center, Minnesota’s Parent Training and Information Center, with Elizabeth Barry (Pacer Center) and Meghan Kunz (PRC) as our guides. They offer lots of helpful information and practical ideas for boosting AAC use during summer activities and events. Enjoy!   Direct Link to Video – https://livestream.com/pacercenter/events/8482946/videos/191312134
