Training Type: Implementation Workshop


Behavior is communication. This workshop will discuss the relationship between challenging behaviors and the communication needs of the individual using AAC. We will explore strategies to target positive behaviors using both visual and vocabulary supports integrated in the Snap + Core First software. Attendees will also learn how to create, customize, and share supports within the software to help implement these strategies successfully in a variety of settings.

Learning Outcomes:  Upon successful completion, participants will be able to:  

  •   Name three primary reasons behind challenging behaviors
  •   Name two vocabulary strategies that can replace a challenging behavior
  •   List three types of behavior supports that can be integrated into an AAC device
