Less than ONE week to go!

BUSY time gets BUSIEST this week!! We have classes DAILY this week to prepare for the program and depart for Zambia this Saturday May 23.

On Monday, students learned about various AAC devices ranging from low-tech flash cards to high tech apps on an iPad!

Hmmm – it seems that it should be easier the third time doing this, but the amount of work required to put the program together, communicate with the Zambian partners, find out their needs, organize the daily activities, etc. etc. etc. takes just as much time each year!
