Implementation Workshop

Implementing AAC for Emergent Communicators. (Hammond, IN.)

Description

Course Description: This implementation-based workshop will focus on the emergent communicator and how we can best provide augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) supports and strategies that help everyone realize their communication potential.  Participants will review the stages of pre-intentional and intentional communication as well as low and high tech AAC communication supports with the goal of moving our emergent communicators toward symbolic communication.
 
Learning Objectives:  Upon completion, participants will be able to: (1) List three characteristics of an emergent communicator. (2) Identify two tools for assessing emergent communication skill. (3) Identify two high-tech AAC solutions that can be implemented with the emergent communicator population.
