Strategies for Using Classroom Based AAC Tools and Resources

One-day learning opportunity

Does your classroom, or a classroom you support, have a variety of AAC (Augmentative and Alternative Communication) tools collecting dust because you aren't quite sure how to use them with the students in your class? Do you want to establish a base of AAC tools to support the communication needs of ALL students in your classroom? Then join us for a hands-on make and take session. During the morning we will discuss the difference between classroom based and dedicated AAC tools. We will also review a variety of AAC tools and strategies to facilitate use of these tools across the day for students. During the afternoon, participants will be given time to create their own supports to use with the AAC tools in their classroom as well as create low-tech/no tech communication supports. This training is intended for assistive technology professionals, speech-language pathologists, teachers, teaching assistants, and occupational/physical therapists.
