Very valuable for Special Ed "people". It is long: 56 minutes and there are tech glitches making it hard to understand, Sam.

3 3 bunny slippers. Samantha shared many free web resources for use with students who have augmentative and alternative communication needs. The audio quality of this webinar was poor. I was able to follow along with the slides because I have background knowledge of the material. For some reason this webinar is 56 minutes long.
