A- A+

What better way to help local businesses become more AAC-friendly than to have people who use AAC every day teach them to use supportive strategies? Today’s video features the Thumbs Up Communication in Action group supported by Dr. Shannon Hennig’s Inclusive Communication in Wellington, New Zealand. Follow along in their journey as they advocate for more inclusive interactions in a community business and take a peek at this experience of effective self-advocacy. 

Many thanks to the group members, Dr. Hennig, and to ISAAC for making this video available. You can see more of Dr. Hennig’s work here.

    You are doing a great job!!! I am looking for help with a new student of mine who has very little arm, head control and is nonverbal student. He does not use his AAC very well. I enjoyed watching the video of the student at McDonalds.
