Prep Party

Back in Addis! After departing the lovely Lalibela, we spent the afternoon back at the hotel preparing sample augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) materials for our professional development day at Nehemiah. We broke into teams and made calendars, schedules, name tags, and social stories. When we came together, we practiced explaining strategies and activities associated with the materials we made. We are looking forward to collaborating with the teachers to create customized materials for their students and classrooms. Tomorrow will be an exciting day!

      Hi Meg! We were starting to worry about you not commenting on any posts so far ๐Ÿ˜‰ Just joking! So happy to be here, I am loving every second of it. Africa is beautiful and Ethiopians are beautiful people inside and out. I am feeling so grateful that I have this opportunity (Thank you Dr. Crowley!!).
