From Assessment to Implementation: Innovative Strategies for AAC Service Delivery

Description

Innovation in technology combined with the latest AAC research has enabled individuals with significant communication challenges to access powerful tools for interactive and efficient communication. This session will address the design strategies, development process and research behind the Tobii Dynavox product communication content. Participants will explore both Compass and Communicator software and learn the purpose and function of each communication tool and learn the key elements for successful AAC assessment, planning and implementation. Design considerations for specific target conditions (e.g., autism, aphasia, ALS, etc.) will also be demonstrated and discussed.

Using video examples, case studies and relevant research, participants will explore how the communication tools found in both the Compass and Communicator page sets can be used to support language and literacy development, social participation and efficient communication. Participants will leave with a collection of practical ideas and tools that can be immediately implemented with individuals of various ages, abilities, and communication levels.

Learning Objectives:  Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:

● Identify key elements of the content design process. 
● Describe 3 research articles that influenced the content design on the Compass and Communicator page sets.
● Compare and contrast efficiency and precision communication tools.
● Locate evaluation and therapy resources to support effective AAC service delivery.
