Monday evening’s entertainer CJ  was so taken with Mike and his skills that he included Mike in his act!  Mike and CJ brought the house down!

ACS staffed an exhibit so attendees could learn more about remote CART, text-interpreting, and captioning.

Another Day at Exhibit

Valerie presented with Chris Littlewood on Real-World Emergency Preparedness for Persons Who Are Deaf and Hard of Hearing and then a solo workshop on Communication Strategies to Survive in the Workplace.  Both workshops were enthusiastically received and the audience participation was wonderful!

Hats off to the Southeast Regional Institute on Deafness for another wonderful conference and hats off to Team ACS for being a part of it!
