Training Type: Device Training
As clinicians, teachers, aides, and parents, we all seek the measure of success in the classroom that ensures a more inclusive environment: one that fosters students’ emerging AAC skills, supports growth, and provides opportunities for inclusive interactions with a variety of people.
Through lecture, video examples, and demonstrations using high-tech communication software, participants will explore a variety of ways to progress student communication, and social and academic goals. Assessment tools, communication partner techniques, implementation strategies, and resources will be introduced to support inclusion and successful use of AAC in the classroom.
Participants will leave with new ideas, strategies and resources to use the next day in their classrooms!
1. Define augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) and describe how it can be used to address student communication, social and academic goals.
2. Name and describe two broad types of vocabulary needed for classroom participation.
Certificates of Attendance will be available to use as continuing education documentation for clinical maintenance hours.
