October 15 - 16, 2019
8:00 a.m - 4:00 p.m.
#TalkingAAC is the only conference of it's kind in Michigan - focusing exclusively on topics related to augmentative/alternative communication (AAC). This event is presented a coalition of school districts across the state of Michigan. #TalkingAAC is open to teachers, therapists, staff, families, and other members of the community in roles supporting individuals with complex communication needs.
Each day of the conference beings with a keynote presentation. While the regular session focus on the 'what' and the 'how' of AAC, the keynote presentations focus on the 'why.' We believe in listening to the perspectives of people who use AAC and their families. Each year we select a parent or AAC user to share their perspective with the #TalkingAAC community.
Following the keynote presentation, attendees will choose from a variety of topics over the course of this two-day event. Regular sessions are 75-minutes in length, allowing time for learning and discussion. There is an hour-long break for lunch each day and vendors are on hand to showcase their resources in the vendor fair. The cost for the two-day conference is $175.
Register now to reserve your seat! Approximately 6 weeks prior to the event, attendees will have the opportunity to select their sessions for each day. You will receive a link to the digital schedule on or before September 2nd, 2019.
