AAC Courses 2014

The TalkLink Trust has continued to run a number of courses designed to assist people who use or support the use of ACC tools and strategies during 2013. Feedback from these courses has been very positive and we will continue to run a number of AAC related courses during 2014. We will run these courses throughout New Zealand and we welcome contact from people who would be interested in helping to organise a course in their region.

The courses include:

In addition Dr Sally Clendon will be running two further literacy related courses in 2013. The Balanced Literacy Approach: Positive Communication and Literacy Outcomes for All Children workshop will describe the rationale and principles underlying the balanced literacy approach and how it can be applied to children with complex communication and learning needs.  Sally is a speech-language therapist and a consultant in the area of literacy for children with significant disabilities particularly those with complex communication needs. She is a Research Affiliate of the Centre for Literacy and Disability Studies at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, USA.
