On this week's preview edition, we get ready for a hearty discussion of augmentative and alternative communication or AAC. Whether high- or low-tech, these articles get at the tip of the iceberg when it comes to communication for non-vocal individuals. And in Errata, Diana shares a wonderful email, Jackie tells us all how to make her pocket ethics charts, and Rob thanks you all for listening then demands iTunes reviews and Facebook likes so he can feel pretty.
