Camp ALEC (AAC, Literacy, Education, Communication) is a weeklong summer camp designed for students with physical disabilities whose primary means of communication is through AAC. The camp is now in its third year under the direction of Drs. Karen Erickson and David Koppenhaver. As the name implies, literacy is a big part of this camp. But there’s also plenty of time for swimming, toasted marshmallows, and even a prank or two!
Tina Moreno is one of the organizers of the camp, a speech-language pathologist specializing in AAC, and a mother of an AAC user. She joins me for a short conversation to talk about Camp ALEC as well as her path to becoming an SLP.
