Dr. Kris Brock from Idaho State University sat down to talk with us about the current state of Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC). It was a fascinating conversation about how grad school needs to change, technology changes that will improve how we work with bilingual clients, and most importantly, the best way for us as SLPs to ramp up our AAC skills to best serve ACC clients.

We captured the highlights in these 4 videos coming in just under 5 minutes total.
