course-thumbnailThis one-hour implementation class will focus on research-based techniques that a communication partner (parent/caregiver, teacher, therapist, etc.) can use to increase communication for individuals using a speech generating device.  Participants will learn about aided language input and how it can be incorporated into daily activities to promote language growth through discussion and video scenarios. Examples of common communication behaviors of both the AAC communicator and the communication partner will be discussed, as well as simple ways to change those behaviors to increase communication interaction. Participants will learn simple strategies for selecting beginning target vocabulary for daily activities.

Anyone who supports an individual who uses a speech-generating device would benefit from attending this training.

You do not need to bring an AAC device to this training.
