Video of the Week: Promoting Friendships Between Users of AAC & Their Peers
While friendships with classmates, neighbors, and other peers offer great richness to individuals who use AAC, there is often inadequate support to facilitate these relationships.
In today’s video, we feature the work of Dr. Erna Alant who challenges us to re-think our AAC services and find better ways to support the development and maintenance of friend relationships.
Many thanks to Dr. Alant and the Centre for Augmentative and Alternative Communication for this important presentation.
