NJSHA has developed a series of podcasts. The first set explores various NJSHA committees and will provide insight into what each committee does and what is involved in participation on the committee. The common thread of NJSHA’s podcasts is to provide information about the organization and resources that raise awareness of the issues, advocacy and changes that affect the professionals and the clients served across the lifespan.

In this podcast a NJSHA AAC committee member, Larry McDonald interviews Luke Angelino, a lifelong AAC user with more than 40 years of experience using a range of augmentative and alternative communication devices. Luke uses a text to speech system to participate in this interview, and listeners can expect some pauses in the recording as he composes his responses to questions. We hope you find the podcast informative and through this experience gain deeper insight into the power of AAC!
