Hey Michiganders

This sounds like fun so I thought I would pass the information along to fellow Michigan people who use AUGENTATIVE AND ALTERNATIVE COMMUNICATION.

This sounds like fun. I only wish Logan had an augmentative communication device. His first evaluation was over a year and a half ago and they said Logan wouldn't benefit from having one then. They said he wasn't cognitively ready for one. I had asked for another evaluation at his last IEP since he had gotten older and matured. Will have to revisit that when school starts again. There is nothing I would love more than to be able to communicate with Logan.
