Why I created The Talk Back Team for AAC!

During my CF year I had multiple kiddos on my caseload that used AAC.  To say I had NO clue what I was doing would be an understatement.

I went to conventions, signed up for extra trainings, and took certificate courses.

I spent years and $$$$ money to gain the skills to support my kiddos and team.  

With the Talk Back Team for AAC you will build your skills and confidence right here on your computer.  

"I have been an SLP for over 25 years.  I have supported students that use AAC, but I wanted to learn some new strategies.  I feel like I have new activities and ways to help my students."
