The day consisted of various speakers and presentations and it finished off with a screening of the movie, Only God Could Hear Me.
I met some amazing people and I learned some things too. Here's what I enjoyed most about my experience:
- meeting Jess, Emily and Carolyn -- three adult women who use voice output devices to communicate.
- speaking with Jess and hearing about what she has accomplished.
- listening to Skye Wattie and his mom, Gail Fisher-Taylor tell about their trip across Canada to raise awareness and funds for people who use AAC.
- I actually got to meet Gail Fisher-Taylor and her eldest son, Kerr Wattie. He is a cool communicator just like Carter (I'm borrowing that term from Gail, Skye and Kerr. Love it!).

I followed their blog last year which tells the amazing story of their cross Canada trip.
