Our next meeting of the Midwest AAC User Support Group will be held Saturday, March 6, at 11:00 a.m. It will be in the same place as the first meeting, The Timbers in the common area just inside the main entrance. The address is 5111 E. 21st St. North, Wichita. From 21st Street, go south on Old Manor which is a street between Woodlawn and Oliver, but closer to Oliver. Take your second right through the gate into the Timbers and then it is the first or second drive on your left. You will see a covered driveway which is the main entrance. The common area is straight through that main entrance. Feel free to call me if you have questions!

Lindsay Salomon, director of School Therapy and Applied Technology at Heartspring will be talking about visual scene displays, and how they can be used by an AAC user. At the first meeting, we showed an example of one. Please bring a flash drive with a couple digital pictures loaded on to it. Make sure you know the name of the images so you can find them quickly. The goal is for you and your attendant to be able to create your own visual scene display by the time you leave!

Though it is not necessary in order to attend, please comment on this blog entry whether you think you will be able to come. This will help me plan. However, feel free to just show up!
