Three days! On Friday, I will be driving to NJ to spend a week at Camp Chatterbox. I’m so excited and a little nervous to try something new so far from home. I know it will be a great experience and I can’t wait to blog about it when I get back. At the PODD training I attended earlier this summer, Gayle Porter said that it was important to talk to individuals who are competent AAC users.  I know that I will have the pleasure to meet lots of individuals who use lots of different types of communication devices. It’s gong to be a blast and I’m looking forward to soaking up all of the information I can. In preparation, I read a book by a former camper  from Camp Chatterbox. It’s a lovely work of fiction about a young girl with CP who goes to camp for 10 days. I loved it and got some insight on what to expect (I have never been to an overnight camp). The book is called Dancing Daisies by Sara Pyszka. You can find her website here and a link to the book on Amazon here. I’m looking forward to meeting Sara and all the campers and staff at Camp Chatterbox. Stay tuned for updates on how it goes!
