course-thumbnailCommunication is a two-way process. As such, the successful implementation of an AAC device depends as much on the skills of the person using AAC as it does on those of the communication partners. This session will provide an overview of the characteristics, roles, and responsibilities of communication partners working with people who use AAC, with a focus on aided language input. Aided language input is a strategy in which the communication partner uses AAC to teach AAC. Participants will have the opportunity to put it to practice through a hands-on activity.

Learning Outcomes: 

Participants will be able to:

  1. define aided language input.
  2. describe characteristics, roles, and responsibilities of communication partners.
  3. identify how to implement AAC in the context of a structured activity.
