What is AAC (Augmentative & Alternative Communication)?

January 17 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Caregiver and Child engaged in a Developmental Screening

Presented in English with Spanish and Cantonese interpretation. 

Get to know what AAC is, the features to look for in AAC tools, and factors to consider when personalizing an AAC system.

Children who aren’t (or aren’t primarily) verbal communicators need to learn communication and language through AAC (Augmentative and Alternative Communication). Learning AAC is a little like learning another language, and it can be difficult for families to know how to help their AAC learners grow into effective AAC communicators. This 4-part series Introduces families to AAC and builds family skills to help their AAC learners. The series is based on Kate Ahern’s Model, Motivate, and Move Out of the Way framework. This workshop is Part 1.

Featured Speaker: Jen McDonald-Peltier from the Center for Accessible Technology.
