Resources from ASHA's "Assessment that Drives AAC System Implementation"

If you missed the March 11, 2014, ASHA online chat entitled “Assessment that Drives AAC System Development,” you're in luck! The many valuable online resources shared and a link to a curated transcript are included below. 

More about the event:
In this two-hour event, SLPs all over North America posed 21 important questions to a panel of three AAC experts. The panel consisted of:
  • Mary Ann Abbott, SLP and AT/AAC Specialist at Ontario Montclair School District & Adjunct at California State University, Los Angeles
  • Celeste Helling, SLP at North Carolina Assistive Technology Program
  • Angela Standridge, SLP at Region 4 Education Service Center specialist in Special Ed, AT, and AAC
Many participants also weighed in with their own ideas. Take a look at the curated translation of these 21 topics made somewhat easier to read in an outline format HERE (download PDF)
