"Tell Us What You Know"
Exploring AAC and education interventions for students with communication and learning needs.
It’s conference time in Tennessee!!!
The 13th Annual Tennessee Association for Assistive Technology (TAAT) Conference will return to the beautiful Franklin Marriott Cool Springs Conference Center on November 29-30, 2018. We will be covering all aspects of AT in the educational setting, but will specifically address the use of Alternative and Augmentative Communication (AAC) to support our learners who struggle with communication difficulties.
We are excited to have Lori Binko, special educator and creator of the amazing LessonPix program, kicking off our program with a general session on introducing core vocabulary for students in the inclusion setting.
