Training Type: Implementation Workshop
In this session, we will help you develop specific strategies for your AAC communicators to go beyond requesting…into the world of asking questions, making comments, protesting, expressing opinions, and other communicative functions. We will use lecture, discussion, video examples, and small-group activities to explore the power of various communicative functions, vocabulary selection, teaching strategies, and specific ways to facilitate communication beyond requesting.
