Much of what I’ve written on this blog is related to how my son communicates - through the use of AAC (Augmentative and Alternative Communication). AAC is about using body language, facial expressions, pointing, gesturing, sign language, picture symbols - whatever is needed to get the message across. My son uses all of the above and he has a voice output device or speech generating device. Those are both long, technical terms for what we call his talker. You’ll meet my son within these pages and you’ll come to see that communication is so much More Than Words.
About MeMy teaching career was put on hold when my husband and I decided to start a family. During my 10+ years working from home, I started writing. Eventually, I created this blog, which has allowed me to share my experiences and build connections with others, all while practising the art of writing.
Welcome! I hope you enjoy what’s captured here at
