Summary: 
 
Tele-AAC in 2018 is a promising, relatively new service delivery model. Practitioners need to be aware that telepractice operates in a dynamic environment with numerous co-existing influencers (i.e., new and unexpected technologies; state and federal regulations; state professional licensure boards; professional association regulations; reimbursement; standards and guidelines; privacy and security requrements; and powerful financial forces). This presentation will provide aspirational practice strategies for telepractice and Tele-AAC, and highlight available resources. Using a case-based approach, the presentation will underscore the essentials of implementation of tele-AAC across populations such as children with ASD, adults with ALS, and military service members with mTBI.
