AAC @ Home: a Multidisciplinary Approach to Supporting Families Remotely * – new!

Presented by Kaitlin Anderson, M.S., CCC-SLP and Jenna Williams, M.S., CCC-SLP, AAC Specialist (90 mins)

The shift to distance learning has presented unique challenges in supporting AAC users, families, and IEP teams remotely. AAC consultation services have been traditionally focused on team trainings, hands-on support, and identifying strategies for in-person implementation. As remote learning has become the “new normal”, AAC service providers need to apply best practices and clinical expertise formerly applied in the classroom to the home setting. This presentation shares strategies that are evidence-based and successful in the classroom; reimagined for the home, taking into consideration tools and resources available to families.
