Adaptive Expeditions announces an opportunity to help develop a new Advanced-Communications Adaptive-Paddling Endorsement (AC-AP Endorsement) for the ACA.

Travel expenses, single occupancy lodging, per diem, and all meals will be covered for 10-11 selected applicants. Participants will be expected to arrive at the beachfront Barrier Island Education Center at Camp St. Christopher on Seabrook Island, South Carolina in time for dinner on Sunday, May 6, 2018. We will work through 7:30pm on the evening of Wednesday, May 9, 2018. Lodging will be provided on May 9 for those wishing to depart in the morning on May 10.

The resulting product will be a new national level instructor credentialing that will benefit Veterans and all other people who have vision impairment or blindness, hearing impairment or deafness, as well as speech, language, and/or perceptual impacts from Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and / or other Acquired Brain Injury (ABI), such as stroke, brain tumor, etc.

Each of the three days will include 9 to 10–hours of session-time, split equally between conference room based theory development and on-water trial and error theory testing. Selected participants will be required to produce 8-10 hours of work (research and information synthesis) prior to the summit.

This project was made possible with funding from Disabled Sports USA and U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. The opinions, findings and conclusions stated herein are those of the author(s) and do not necessarily reflect those of any other party.
