AAC in the Cloud 2019: Theme Reveal & Call for Presentations
Now that we're all getting into the swing of life in 2019, we are excited to announce some BIG things happening for AAC in the Cloud coming up this summer.
AAC in the Cloud is a FREE online conference focused on building the AAC community and helping people learn more about AAC from professionals, parents, users, and more. This will be the third year this awesome event has taken place. If you missed our previous announcement with conference dates, you can find that here.
If you haven't attended the conference before, you have really missed out (but don't feel too bad, sessions from past AAC in the Cloud conferences can still be viewed online so you're not out of luck...whew!). Some of the MOST amazing people have given incredible talks about topics on a wide variety of communication topics. It's been epic!
Even though the conference itself is still a few months away, we just can't wait anymore.
We are excited to announce the conference theme for 2019 and also to open the Call for Presentations.
The theme for AAC in the Cloud 2019 will be:
(drum roll, please)
While speech devices are INCREDIBLE, one thing we have learned as we have worked hand in hand with AAC users, teachers, therapists, and parents is that communication is NOT about the device. It is about the people and practices that help a person have the power to make their voice heard.
And that's what we want to focus on this year.
You know there will be some incredible insights shared (we promise), and we can hardly wait to see it all come together.
