Parents' Corner

Robin Wisner

The Parents’ Corner is organized and written by Robin Wisner. Robin is the mother of four boys, ages 15, 13, and 10 (twins). Her ten year old twins have identical physical disabilities, and communicate using AAC. Because of her children’s disabilities, Robin has educated herself about ways to help her sons learn language on their communication devices, and shares what she has learned at conferences, workshops, and other activities internationally. (Robin Hurd Presentation Resources) Robin writes monthly columns for the Parent’s Corner at the AAC Institute web site and for SERCH, a NASA Broker. She serves on the board of directors of Always On Our Own, a local self-advocacy group for adults with developmental disabilities. Robin can be reached at
