Training Type: Implementation Workshop
Determining how to complete a comprehensive Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) assessment can be daunting. Join us as we discuss AAC assessment considerations, feature matching, and the stages of completing a thorough AAC evaluation from identifying a candidate to writing a report.
Learning Outcomes: Upon successful completion, participants will be able to:
• Identify who could be considered a candidate for an AAC assessment
• Discuss the stages of an AAC Assessment
• Match features of an AAC device to an individual’s needs and strengths
• Discuss potential AAC goals based on four areas of competence
This course is being offered for 2.5 CMH (Certification Maintenance Hours)
A certificate of attendance will be provided at the end of the session.
