The DYnamic Therapy Associates Blog
Hello, all! This post was inspired by Kate Ahern’s session titled “Bringing AAC Home” at ATIA in Orlando that Vicki and I attended. She had some great ideas and insight about our kiddos using their AAC devices at home and in the community. Many of us don’t have the opportunity to provide services to our clients outside the speech clinic (at home, in the community, at school), so we don’t always know how much their voice is heard when we aren’t in therapy. This does not mean, of course, that their needs aren’t met. I understand there are many things that need to be done at home and using an AAC device can sometime s be viewed as “homework” that may or may not get done.
About the Author: I am a SLP who has the distinct fortune of having a job that is also my passion. I have been an AAC Specialist for almost 25 years in schools and my private clinic. I currently own Dynamic Therapy with my husband, Chuck (also of 25 years) who is my business partner and enabler. We have a wonderful staff of SLPs & AAC Specialists who work with us to help our patients. I hope you find my blog helpful as you join me in our journey with our unique and amazing friends!
