So great

I feel like Rachel and Chris consistently “hit the nail on the head” with their speaking points!! Not only do they make points that make so much sense; they give practical application of skill/concept to attempt with my own students. Thank you both for sharing your knowledge!!

Grateful Grad Student

How did I just now learn about this podcast?! I’ve been listening to the episodes for over a week now and I love everything I’m hearing!

I am a current CDS graduate student with a dual interest in communicative disorders and assistive technology. I feel that AAC and AT have incredible potential to improve the lives of SO many with communication disorders, but from my experience many SLP’s do not seem confident in their understanding of how best to incorporate these tools into their therapy.

I am currently enrolled in the AAC course for my graduate program, and I am disappointed to say that it is outdated and disorganized. If this were the only exposure I’d had to AAC, I too would feel ill equipped to assess and treat using AAC.

I am SO SO grateful for the current access to resources such as this for students like myself who are motivated to self educate, but who can’t necessarily afford to attend CEU events yet. Thank you!!
