The power of committed individuals, the power of research, and the combination of the power of actively engaged individuals with aac systems made a terrific impression on me at ASHA 2007 this year. Seeing the power that families have when they advocate for their children in all sorts of ways was something that will be indelibly in my mind from this experience. Seeing much clearer the importance of the research path has been such a weight off my shoulders. I see where I want to go forward and so I will. The combination of seeing all the work on early learning and aac use by Dr. Cynthia Cress, Dr. Janice Light, and the literacy work of Dr. Gail Gillon was so focusing and also so thought provoking. That combined with what we are seeing with the new systems from ALL the major companies is really good for the learners we serve and for us as teachers. Last, it really made me smile to see the Blink Twice Tango Town in the midst of this huge sea of the body that is speech and language pathology. It sure is a terrific time to be trying to help the people we serve.
