AAC Sessions at ASHA Orlando (Nov 20-22)

Not able to make it to the annual American Speech-Language Hearing Association Convention in Orlando, FL, this year? Here are some resources online to help you feel closer to the action on the ground. 

Follow the links below to read/view more from these notable presenters. I only made it through Friday morning's scheduled sessions and had to stop myself. You can continue down the rabbit hole by copying these and more presenter name(s) and ", AAC" into your favorite search engine. I know you will be impressed with what you find! Link to the complete Pocket Guide to the Convention to view all of the "AAC" coded sessions, HERE.

Download the ASHA Pocket Planner HERE and browse all of the sessions with the "AAC" topic code and continue the fun. 

Maybe there will be access to handouts or slideshows available after the fact. Keep your eyes open online and let the SCAAC-Network know what you find (email SCAAC-N, CLICK HERE).

If it's any consolation, the convention will be in Denver, CO, November 12-14, 2015. A little closer to home for us CA-types.
