Video of the Week: AAC in Emergency Situations – Tales from the Trenches
Floods, fires, nor’easters, tornadoes, hurricanes, blizzards, earthquakes
We’ve seen all of that and more here in the western hemisphere in the past year. In these and other emergencies, people who use AAC are especially vulnerable.
As AAC practitioners, is it really part of our role to help our clients prepare for these situations? Yes! Our expertise can go a long way in helping those who use AAC get prepared so that they can communicate in these adverse conditions.
Today, we turn to a recorded presentation presented by Sarah Blackstone and Amy Goldman that was part of the USSAAC Webinar Series. In this presentation, they share USSAAC’s efforts to aid in recovery and discuss our responsibilities as AAC providers to assist with emergency preparedness. Their wonderful tips, suggestions for personal preparedness, and resources can help many of us get our clients ready to face these sorts of emergencies.
