Communication Matters is very keen to increase the involvement of our members who use AAC in the activity of the association.
Telling AAC Stories (TAACS) is a new project which we plan to share with you in more detail at the CM2010 National Symposium in September. TAACS will be a regular feature in the Communication Matters Journal and on this website.
If you use AAC, we would love to have your stories on the theme ‘A funny thing happened…’ – a lighthearted look at how your AAC has got you into or out of trouble!
We hope it will become a resource for raising wider awareness about AAC. We also hope to enter the stories in the annual ISAAC story telling competition, and use them closer to home to support the awareness campaign to be run in the UK throughout 2011.
To become involved, write a story of no more than 500 words and submit it by email to firstname.lastname@example.org by 15 September 2010 for inclusion in launch at the CM2010 National Symposium.
If you know of anybody who has good stories to tell please encourage them to send them to us as well; non-members welcome.
