“Awe and Wonder AAC Podcast”
Are you losing the human connection in the midst of data collection? Join Brenda and Sarah Tuesdays at noon as they talk with inspirational people who create awe and wonder in unique ways. “Wonder inspires the wish to understand; awe inspires the wish to let shine, to acknowledge and to unite.” Ulrich Weger & Johannes Wagemann (sourced from Atlas of the Heart by Brene Brown) Participants will hear first hand accounts from people supporting students with complex needs.
