Presented by Mollie Mindel, M.S., CCC-SLP, AAC Specialist & Joseph Arata, M.S., CCC-SLP, AAC Specialist (3 hrs)
Working with an ever-increasing diverse student population requires flexibility and creativity to ensure the interventions we are delivering to our students are culturally responsive. This is particularly important for supporting our culturally linguistically diverse students who use AAC. It can be a challenge for the clinician to develop cultural competence, and implement culturally and linguistically appropriate AAC systems, materials, and activities for each individual student. This presentation will address the challenges involved in supporting CLD students who use AAC, and provide the tools and strategies needed to be successful!
