- Hi I'm Dana Nieder. Author of the Uncommon Sense Blog and mom to a 7-year-old AAC user. I'm here to talk about an upcoming webinar, that I'm hosting for the Center on Technology and Disability, entitled Getting Started With Augmentative and Alternative Communication, or AAC, for Your Child. In the webinar I'm going to address some of the questions and concerns that arise in the beginning stages of AAC acquisition and implementation. Such as how to advocate for a comprehensive, robust AAC system, general guidelines for how to select initial vocabulary, ideas for learning how to use an AAC system yourself, and beginning strategies as to how to incorporate AAC into the interactions with your child. The webinar will be held on Tuesday, November 10th, from 7:30-8:30 P.M Eastern Standard Time. It will be followed by a question and answer webinar on Thursday, November 12th from 7:30-8:30 P.M Eastern Standard Time. I hope to see you guys there.
