Andrea Hubbers
Speech and language therapist and BA (sign) linguist.

I am a speech and language therapist and BA linguist specializing in sign languages. I have a lot of experience in working with children and adults who are hearing impaired or have communication or language impairments as well as a cognitive or learning impairment. I work mostly with their parents and other people in their social network to optimize their communication skills and always from a Total Communication or Alternative and Augmentative Communication point of view.

I give many lectures and workshops on communication and language developmental issues, TC/AAC, and sign classes. I have developed training for people on a bachelor's degree level, who want to be able to give classes on signing according to the Weerklankmethod and an instructional DVD that shows how to use signs and sign language in communication with people with different levels and possibilities.

Language development and pathology, auditory development and pathology, sign languages, cognitive impairments, Total Communication / Alternative, and Augmentative Communication.

Participated in projects in: Uganda, Kenya, and Tanzania.
