"Tell Us What You Know"... 2018
Because of a new focus within the Tennessee Department of Education to reach students who present with complex communication needs, TAAT 2018 will place special emphasis on sessions addressing the use of Alternative and Augmentative Communication (AAC). Our motto for 2018, "Tell Us What You Know" is intended to remind us that we must be able to REACH our students in order to TEACH our students! We have invited leaders in the field of AT - AAC to participate and expect an outstanding lineup of interactive and informative sessions, including a special keynote session.
We will still offer sessions on a wide scope of topics and strands for the use of AT such as physical disabilities, Autism, mobile device use, service delivery models, cognitive disabilities, curriculum modification, differentiated instruction, assessment, reading and writing accommodation tools, etc.
