Chat Connect & Collab
Recently we welcomed a group of people who communicate in diverse ways and their communication partners for two Chat, Connect & Collab sessions in our community hub. The group crafted together and shared life experiences while building self-advocacy skills, exploring communication and creating connections. It was a fun time and we look forward to more sessions soon.
