Tobii Dynavox: Empowering Communication and Literacy (Jackson MS)

Description

Join us as we explore evidence-based approaches for supporting both communication and literacy development for children with complex communication needs. We will discuss Snap Core First communication software and associated Tobii Dynavox literacy tools to support symbol-based communicators and their communication partners.
