Video Power!!

I'm trying to collect favorite youtube videos about AAC. Videos are so powerful in quickly changing minds, debunking myths, and providing models.

What are some videos you have found useful?
Here are a few that I love to share:

Sponsored Silence


Many Stories, 1 Voice

Language Stealers

Please give links to YOUR favorite AAC videos. Thanks!

iPad Fever

Just got back from Closing the Gap. It's so interesting to see such iPad fever! I must confess that I seem to have caught at least a slight case of that fever.

Mark Coppin and I are going to pull together a list of some of our favorite apps, with ideas for using them to support AAC and literacy, so stay tuned.

Just hoping that we can all move past the 'cool' factors, and remember cognitive clarity. More than a decade ago, I remember Karen Erickson repeatedly slowing down my freewheeling ideas with the question, 'And you're doing that WHY?' So, I'm trying to temper my excitement about the next great app by asking myself those important why & how questions!!
