Communication Partner Training & Techniques: Implementing AAC Effectively (Or You Can’t Do It Alone!)

Presented by Jenna Williams M.S., CCC-SLP, SPG AAC Specialists (1 hr)

Audience – SLPs, Teachers, Paraprofessionals
One of the most critical keys to AAC success for any student is the buy-in and comfort level of the family with the AAC system. Without their support, the SLP will struggle mightily to make communication a reality for their students using AAC in the home. We need to provide communication partners with relevant, carefully selected techniques to support and develop AAC communication. This presentation provides a systematic approach to teaching critical communication partner skills for supporting home AAC development. Communication partner training for families will be highlighted with step-by-step instructions of engaging others into the AAC world.
