FREE! Implementation Strategies for AAC (Wed 2/24)

Implementation Strategies for AAC - 3 hour

This condensed training focuses on strategies to teach and promote the use of an augmentative communication system to get students to independently initiate spontaneous, novel utterances rather than simply repeating pre-stored sentences when prompted.  The strategies presented will cover a range of communication ages and abilities, including those at the level of emerging language and literacy. The teaching strategies presented are appropriate for a wide variety of devices and programs.

You do not need to bring an AAC device to the training.

The training is not limited to people using PRC devices.

This training is appropriate for anyone (teacher, SLP, parent, paraprofessional, etc.) working with a student using a communication device.
