I am stuck overnight at Pittsburgh airport on my way home after a week at the ISAAC (International Society for Augmentative and Alternative Communication) Biennial Conference. Feel a bit like Tom Hanks in the ‘Terminal’ as the same happened on the way out at Newark Airport!
Anyway, it was a great conference – lots of stimulating presentations and conversations. It was lovely to meet up with old friends and to make new ones – the world of AAC is a very special community.
The most significant themes I’m bringing back for Talking Mats are:
- The explosion of App developments and how we can move forward with developing a Talking Mats App
- Different styles and purposes of symbols
- The use of WHO – ICF Core sets
- Working with people at risk
- Extending the use of our on-line training
- Learning about Twitter and how we should use it for our business
I presented 2 papers which can be downloaded here:
