Myths and Realities in AAC Service Delivery
Myths are widely held but false beliefs. This presentation will provide an overview of myths that have hampered the use of AAC with both children and adults with disabilities. We will provide evidence to refute the appropriateness of these myths and present strategies for how to debunk them.
Parent Coached AAC Language Intervention for Toddlers and Preschoolers
This workshop will focus on coaching parents to use AAC language intervention strategies with their toddlers and preschoolers. We will describe the role of receptive and expressive language skills, the importance of speech generating devices (SGD), the parents’ role, and protocols for implementing parent-coached augmented language interventions.
