I met Jacquelyn at the Inclusion BC conference in Victoria earlier this year. I mentioned our conference and how we want to bring more self-advocate voices to our families and allies and she was happy to agree to come present! We hope you will be able to make it to see her speak at Connecting to Strengthen Advocacy in Education, our 5th education advocacy conference held October 18th and 19th at the Civic Hotel in Surrey, BC.

Plenary: Inner World Outer World: Using Tablet Technology to Share more of myself and bring the World closer to me
I will give a talk about how I use my tablet to enhance my life. I will use pictures and video to show you how I can use my tablet to express my inner life so people can know me better and more fully. My tablet is like a window that brings together me and you.
I hope that people will learn that a using a tablet and all the apps can help people have a bigger voice and more opportunities for expression and connection.
