RERC (Webcast): Supporting Communication of Individuals with Minimal Movement

Not a new post, but a valuable one to tide you over during these quiet summer months...

Webcast Description

Susan Fager, Ph.D. CCC/SLP and David Beukelman,Ph.D. CCC/SLP 

For many years we have provided AAC services to people with minimal movement capability. Their medical conditions include brainstem stroke, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, Guillan Barre’ Syndrome, and chronic myasthenia gravis. As with others who rely on AAC, these people are multi-modal communicators in that they use high and low technology options depending upon the situation and the listener. High technology options include commercially available devices as well as technology under development. During the past year, we have provided presentations related to our work in this area at RESNA, the World Congress on Disability, and ATIA. In this webcast we present the content of those presentation through an interactive discussion format.
