Monthly Achievements in AAC
After years of frustration, family members, teachers and classmates are finally getting a glimpse inside the mind of 13-year-old Jim Caster. "He is able to ask for what he wants or what he needs or what he does not want," said his speech therapist, Heather Gray. "His personality and sense of humor are starting to come out. You can just see he is so much happier, and you can see who he is as person."
"Overall excellent presentation - extremely valuable and informative. Thank you!! I will recommend this training to my colleagues."
