S.03, Ep.8: An AAC User’s Perspective on Access and Inclusion with Jordyn Zimmerman



Listen & Download

We are so excited to bring you this interview with Jordyn Zimmerman, a passionate educator and disability advocate who is currently the Head of Product Strategy at the Nora Project. Jordyn was diagnosed as autistic at a young age, but she did not receive access to augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) until the age of 18. Her own lived experience fuels her beliefs about leveraging tools and supports to drive change around inclusion for all learners.  Among her many accomplishments, Jordyn has twice been appointed to the Presidential Committee for People with Intellectual Disabilities and her work has been published in the Boston Globe and the New York Times. 

Note: You will hear some long pauses between each question and Jordyn’s answer because we’ve done our best to preserve the authenticity of Jordyn’s communication experience.
