Webinar Description

#TalkingAAC is the only event of its kind in Michigan - a conference focusing exclusively on topics related to augmentative/alternative communication (AAC). This event is presented by a coalition of school districts across the state of Michigan. #TalkingAAC is open to teachers, therapists, staff, families, and other members of the community in roles supporting individuals with complex communication needs.

Each day of the conference begins with a keynote presentation. While the regular sessions focus on the 'what' and the 'how' of AAC, the keynote presentations focus on the 'why.' We believe in listening to the perspectives of people who use AAC and their families. Each year we select a parent or AAC user to share their perspective with the #TalkingAAC community.

Following the keynote presentation, participants move into breakout sessions by selecting the Zoom link of their choice. At each session time, you may select from four concurrent sessions based on your interests and learning needs. This results in a total of six 75-minute sessions over the two-day event. Please note that all #TalkingAAC sessions are presented live and you must attend at the scheduled time in order to receive credit. See this link to preview the format for each day (bit.ly/TalkingAACSchedule) or view the digital conference program (bit.ly/DigitalProgramAAC) Registration for the #TalkingAAC 2021 Conference is $50 per person.

You also have the option to attend a pre-conference workshop ahead of time. We are thrilled to welcome Amanda Hartmann and Tabi Jones-Wohleber to present at #TalkingAAC! You may select one or both, but these sessions are optional and require an additional fee of $25 per workshop. Read more about each workshop at bit.ly/AACWorkshop2021

Participants interested in reporting their hours to ASHA will be provided with a verification of attendance form for the pre-conference and/or conference.
