The much awaited AAC Symposium by PlayStreet in a unique format has arrived.

A journey of a parent who was not very sure of starting the sign language for her non verbal child for the fear that it would take away the motivation to speak, but that became her platform to speak her first few words. How beautifully she has weaved the memoir on moving to PECS to PlayTalk which eventually helped her child to speak in sentences.
