The teaching strategies presented are appropriate for a wide variety of devices and programs.
This presentation is appropriate for anyone (teacher, SLP, parent, paraprofessional, etc.) working with a student using a communication device.
Devices are not required at this training.
Participants may bring an ECO, Vanguard, Vantage, Vantage Lite or laptop computer downloaded with PASS software.
