Mentoring in the Field of AAC: Facilitating Effective Learning Relationships June 21, 2023 at 1:00 pm

Have you reached a point in your career where you don’t think you can improve your skillset without the guidance of someone else…someone whose knowledge, skills and experience could help you progress in your professional goals? Or maybe you are a person who has a vested interest in seeing others around you succeed? As a profession we have conferences where knowledge is shared in a “sit-n-get” model which we know doesn’t meet the needs of those looking to grow and expand. This kind of growth requires a relationship over time with a person who is ready for a mutually beneficial relationship. This is called mentoring. Join this class to learn how to start a true mentorship program so therapists, parents, teachers and students can thrive.
