The Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) workshop on effective AAC evaluations is designed for speech therapists, educators, and other professionals who work with individuals of all ages with communication difficulties.
The course will provide an overview of AAC and its importance in supporting individuals with communication challenges. The course will cover the components of an AAC evaluation and report writing, including using the SETT Framework and feature matching activities. Participants will also have hands-on experience with speech communication assistive technology, allowing them to gain practical knowledge and experience in selecting and using AAC devices.
In addition, the course will provide information on funding options for AAC devices, including grants, insurance coverage, and other financial assistance programs. Participants will learn about the various funding options available, and how to navigate the process of obtaining funding for AAC devices. By the end of the course, participants will have a better understanding of the importance of effective AAC evaluations and will have the skills and knowledge necessary to conduct their own evaluations.
