Maymester Class #2:

Another 3-hour class this morning spent on preparing for the activities we have planned for our time in Zambia. And we have several new activities this year with our new speech pathologist co-leader Christi Masters!

We worked on preparing some demonstrations of simple and more advanced communication devices for children (Augmentative and Alternative Communication or AAC devices). The students really seemed to enjoy this activity! We will be training Zambian staff on this during our program this year and hope that it will be a useful skill for them for the long run!

Breanne and Kelly are working on an idea for a simple communication strip….
