High-Tech AAC for Adults with Neurogenic Communication Disorders

Description

This introductory session will define the unique role and purpose of Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC), for adults with neurogenic communication disorders. With a focus on aphasia and ALS, participants will explore practical strategies for assessment and implementation.  Tobii Dynavox communication pagesets and features, developed specifically for these unique populations, will be reviewed and demonstrated.  Small group activities, video, and discussion will be used to apply new knowledge and skills. Participants will leave with relevant research, clinical guidelines, and implementation resources.

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

● Describe how AAC strategies and techniques can be used as a compensatory strategy during the speech and language rehabilitation and support process.
● Identify three communication needs of people with neurogenic communication disorders and a corresponding feature or pageset to address these specific needs.
● List five implementation resources to support AAC service delivery in the clinical setting.
