Webinar (4/8/14) Gateway & DynaVox Compass with Joan Bruno

Next week, Joan Bruno will be hosting a live webinar on Tuesday April 8that 5:00 pm ET (2:00 Pacific).  This session will provide an overview of the revised and updated Gateway to Language and Learning (Gateway©) page sets for the DynaVox T10 and DynaVox Compass App.   
 History:  Gateway was created by Dr. Joan Bruno, Ph.D., CCC-SLP, in 1997 to help Frankie, a boy with cerebral palsy, learn how to use AAC to communicate and to achieve academic requirements.  Gateway is comprised of single words that can be joined together to create longer messages.  Over the years, Dr. Bruno has added to and changed Gateway to reflect a variety of developmental levels, types of communicators, and changes in technology.
