Seminar Highlights:  SGD funding exists because clinicians, researchers, educators, manufacturers and advocates have worked and continue to work together — often under USSAAC’s banner — to challenge and overcome a wide range of barriers to SGD access.  This seminar reviews six of these barriers and describes how responses were developed and roles were assigned and implemented.  The central importance of a community-wide membership organization, such as USSAAC, in expanding and protecting SGD access is also discussed.

Speaker Bio: Lewis Golinker is an attorney who has long served as USSAAC’s Advocacy Director.  He has more than 34 years of experience expanding and protecting access to funding for speech generating devices.
