Training Type: Implementation Workshop
Course Description: This implementation-based workshop will focus on the emergent communicator and how we can best provide Alternative and Augmentative Communication supports that help those individuals best realize their communication potential. Participants will review the stages of pre-intentional to intentional communication and how to use low and high tech AAC communication supports to move emergent communicators toward symbolic communicators.
Upon completion, participants will be able to (1) List three characteristics of an emergent communicator, (2) Identify two tools for assessing emergent communication skills and (3) Identify two high-tech AAC solutions that can be implemented with the emergent communicator population
