Session Description

Abstract: 

Alternative and Augmentative communication is a specialty area which can be challenging…yet, so fun! We will summarize and share the whys, hows, and highlights of AAC, straight from the mouths of speech language pathologists. Our discussion will include the logic behind the pictures, language, layout, a survey of common programs, as well as a tips and tricks of usage tutorial. Will provide ways to incorporate AAC into OT, PT, and Educational programs. Wrap up includes an extended Q + A, including a chance to ask questions during some guided hands on experiences.
