Training Type: Discovery Lab
Using lecture and case studies, participants will learn about augmentative and alternative communication (AAC), access and independence solutions for adults. Participants will apply AAC strategies to both symbol-based communication and adults using eye gaze access and/or text-based communication. Each section will include interactive lab stations with guided hands-on activities. Opportunities to apply your knowledge in practical ways will be provided. Each participant will leave the session with a handful of resources and practical tips that can be used the very next day!
