Angelman UK Communication and Literacy Conference

For the last three days I have been so privileged to be at the Angelman UK Communication and Literacy Conference in Coventry, England. It was awesome to see some people again and to meet some new people. Thanks to all who attended and to the amazing Trustees who put this event together!

Here are copies of my presentation handouts as promised to those who attended:





And finally, here are some of the resources that people asked me to provide links for:

Romski and Sevcik (2005) Augmentative Communication and Early Intervention: Myths and Realities

Do’s and Don’ts of AAC from AssistiveWare and myself – this includes links to all of the different posts we wrote about each of the areas, including “What is Beginning AAC”, etc.

Blog post about Tools for writing with the templates for making your own flip charts

Durham Road School’s handout on Predictable Chart Writing (prepared by Mary-Louise Bertram)

Dynamic Learning Maps has a series of modules on balanced literacy instruction covering many of the areas we discussed. These modules are designed for school teams to use to learn about these areas. You can access modules on:

And I have a number of blog posts on each of the areas that we talked about over the conference if you look back at my older blog posts!

And Long Live the Communication (and Literacy) Revolution!!
