Developing AAC-Resources for Children and Adults with Communicative Disabilities. Building an Infra-Structure in Russia and Belorus.

Lia Kalinnikova, PhD, Magnus Magnusson, PhD



Research institutions in the Russian Federation and Sweden have agreed to develop a fram-work project, focussing on the establishment and development of an infra-structure within the Russian Federation for AAC. The target groups are children as well as adults and the work will involve a large amount of basic investigation into the needs in the Archangelsk region which is the main target region and the city of Minsk in the Republic of Belorus. A framework project is planned for the next five years and it will include a large amount of education for special professional target groups, whereby awareness of the possibilities connected with AAC will be established.

Disney produced a television show in the mid 1990s called Gargoyles. It's a great show and I'm a big fan. A few years ago Disney started to release the show on DVD. The last release was of season 2, volume 1. That was two years ago. Volume 2 has not been released. Why? Poor sales. So if you should find yourself wanting to support my work, instead I ask you pick up a copy of season 2, volume 1. It's a great show and you might find yourself enjoying it.
