We invite children, siblings, young adults, parents, SLTs, carers, teachers and Assistive Technologists to take part in our practical workshop in the upcoming ISAAC webinar, we will focus on how children/young adults can make their own films, with the assistance of a personal crew (if needed)! In this way we hope to encourage and enable children and young adults to make films about their lives for themselves, Kids-ISAAC reporters, or Kids-ISAAC Short Filmfestival!

Webinar Objectives:

  • Film & AAC Technology, in School and Home
  • TACTS Framework (Transforming Assistive Communication Technologies Support)
  • A Film! Where to Start: Topics & Ideas
