AAC and Literacy: How to Get Started

Description

Research has proven that communication, language, and literacy skills develop in concert with one another, and that time spent in instruction in any one of these areas builds awareness and skill in the other. This workshop will review steps to getting started in providing literacy instruction for your AAC user.
