CSUN 2013: AAC Virtually

Thursday morning, 2/28/13, Alisha Magilei-Noterman, AAC/AT and Lisa Sandoval, M.S., CCC-SLP presented a session entitled "AAC Virtually" at the CSUN Annual International Technology for Persons with Disabilities Conference in San Diego.   

Their agency, Dynamic Therapy Solutions, has incorporated telepractice into their modes of service delivery in order to maximize their time, geographic reach, clientele (including those that are less mobile or medically fragile), and productivity (less travel time, more service time).

Using the Knowledge Vision platform, Dynamic Therapy Solutions has provided consultation, direct therapy and teaching sessions, and collaboration on an encrypted platform. They have found that using telepractice, AAC "device abandonment" is less likely.

On April 22, 2013, Alisha and Lisa will launch a new endeavor, My Virtual Learning Centers at Keep your eye out for it!
