Alternative and Augmentative Communication (AAC) - Evaluation to Implementation

POAC Autism Services presents:

A Full Day Conference for Parents and Educators on Integrating Technology into Education Plans in Meaningful and Functional Ways

Technology has a huge impact on the way we teach and intervene with individuals with autism and other developmental, learning, and communication disabilities. This is especially true in the area of Alternative and Augmentative Communication (AAC) devices. The number of options has grown tremendously over the past 10 or 15 years, but how do you know what the best device is for your child or student? For that matter, is your child or student even a candidate for an AAC device? This conference will explore these questions and more. Specifically, it will cover:

The AAC assessment process including what a good assessment should look like, what it should contain, and who should be doing it

Obtaining a device including various funding options and sources

Implementation of the intervention plan including evidence-based practices and models for training and competency

Participants will leave with resources and strategies that they can begin implementing immediately. This full day conference includes breakfast and lunch.
