AAC Lunch & Learn
Building Communication with Aided Language Input

Come join us virtually to learn and collaborate during short presentations about all things AAC (augmentative and alternative communication).

Important Session Information:

This one-hour implementation class will focus on research-based techniques that a communication partner (parent/caregiver, teacher, therapist, etc.) can use to increase communication for individuals using a speech generating device.  Participants will learn about  aided language input and how it can be incorporated into daily activities to promote language growth through discussion and video scenarios. Examples of common communication behaviors of both the AAC communicator and the communication partner will be discussed, as well as simple ways to change those behaviors to increase communication interaction. Participants will learn simple strategies for selecting beginning target vocabulary for daily activities.

Anyone who supports an individual who uses a speech-generating device would benefit from attending this training.
