Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) Foundations Team Training - 014681
This workshop series is designed for professionals working with students with complex communication needs (CCN) who need Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC). During this two-day training, participants will feel empowered so that no matter which specific app, device, training, or technique presents itself, the team will feel they have the foundational knowledge needed to make decisions and plan interventions. This training emphasizes a Learn, Try, Apply approach. LEARN: Teams will develop common background knowledge about AAC and learn a 5 step process to organize and prioritize information related to Augmentative Communication decision making. TRY: Teams will explore and practice successful intervention strategies. APPLY: Teams will use homework, case studies, and reflection to support meaningful, multi-modal communication outcomes.
