(AAC) in the community (Sept)

I just caught wind of an outing that happens I believe once a month that is specifically for people who use an Alternative Augmentative Communication (AAC) device.  It is called "Out & About" and the contact information says to contact Caroline Musselwhite or Krista Howard.  It is my understanding, thus far, you must contact one of these two people to get on their "Out & About" email list.
Also I found that she has a lot of additional resources if you Google her name.
Krista Howard:
There is an activity this next Thursday (9/15/2011) with the flyer information below:

                                            Westside Group Meeting
