Training Type: Device Training
In this special Tips and Tricks for the Holiday's hands on workshop learn to make AAC a SNAP for you, the communicator and all those that support them. Tips and Tricks for the Holidays will focus on topics for the holiday season such as shopping, visiting, holiday events including visual supports. Pages will be shared during this session, participants will leave with resources and practical tips that can be used the very next day! Be sure to set up your free mytobiidynavox account prior to the workshop to take full advantage of sharing.
All participants are encouraged to bring an Ipad, windows 10 tablet (download the free SNAP + Core First App and the free Pathways for Core First App) or bring a Tobii Dynavox Indi, I 110 or I Series with Snap + Core First to get hands on experience. If you already have SNAP + Core First be sure to check for updates before coming; you will need the most current version of the app to receive shared pages.
SNAP + Core First is built for communication success: growth, engagement, and literacy. BEST OF ALL IT IS EASY TO USE AND PERSONALIZE; family members, support staff, teachers and SLPs can make changes, add pages and even find vocabulary in minutes. Sync those changes with another device. It comes with Core Words that continuously builds vocabulary and skills by introducing new vocabulary systematically and purposefully. SNAP + Core First has topic pages that make real-time conversations possible!
Certificates of Attendance will be available to use as continuing education documentation for clinical maintenance hours.
