Webinar 1:

AAC Consideration & Implementation

Title: Necessary Components of AAC Consideration and Implementation

Description: If a student is not successfully using verbal speech as her or his primary form of expression by the age of 3, the educators working with that student should be considering augmentative/alternative communication. But what are those considerations? What principles should everyone involved be using when making decisions about what technology to select for implementation? Considerations discussed during this session will include the Least Dangerous Assumption, vocabulary selection, vocabulary organization, aided language input, and designed engaging and empowering language opportunities.
