WHAT:  The exciting AAC in the Desert Event is back!  This year it's a bit scaled down, with two 1-day workshops.  We will not have an Exhibit Hall or Hands On Stations, but we will have a pizza party & singalong (hopefully featuring Snoopi Botten - more about that later!)

WHO & WHEN:  Speakers include:
March 1, 2018:  Linda J Burkhart will present from 8:30 - 4:30 on Multi-Modal Communication and Learning Strategies for Children Who Face Significant Disabilities.
She will cover:

March 2, 2018:  Dr. Caroline Ramsey Musselwhite will present from 8:30 - 4:30 on Communication All Day Long:  Communication Circles, Social Scripts, and MORE!
Topics include:

-       Debunking the Myths of AAC
-       Supporting Aided Language Input During Shared Reading

-       Using Social Scripts (for quick, highly successful interactions)

More information about speakers is available at:  www.gompers.org/AAC2018
