Please join us to celebrate the end of the year with our guest speaker Alanna Jinks presenting; The A-Z of AAC

About this Event

Another year is almost over and we would love for you to join us for an evening of networking, celebrating and of course, gifts! This will be the official launch of our new name, Disability SPOT.

In true Disability SPOT style, we are adding a bit of learning with a fabulous guest speaker who was the former president of SPOT on DD (now Disability SPOT), Alanna Jinks.

Alanna will be sharing her wealth of knowledge on Augmentative and Alternate Communication (AAC) including how to interact with individuals who are learning to use AAC and promote AAC immersive environments. Alanna will be discussing the latest evidence with regards to AAC and how professional roles may intersect when introducing AAC. To complement Alanna's information, Liberator will be bringing along some AAC devices for us to explore.

Alanna is a speech pathologist who has extensive knowledge working with people with a disability who are non-verbal with a special interest in Autism Spectrum Disorder. Alanna has worked in Western Australia and New South Wales across the government and non-government sector. She is an executive member of Keyword sign NSW and AAC Voice Inc. Alanna is currently the practice lead for speech pathology at Lifestart where she provides high level advice and training to staff on models of practice and latest evidence based practice.

Refreshments will be provided, so we would appreciate accurate RSVPs. If you can no longer attend, please cancel your ticket.
