Can you relate to these scenarios? Your child has a brand new iPad with a shiny fresh new AAC app. Your patient has a $7000 communication device and she doesn't seem to know what's programmed on it. Your client has something called a PODD communication book that seems like it has way too many words for him. Your grandchildren have communication devices that they've owned for over 4 years and they've never really used them except to ask for their favorite snacks. So what do you do? Join us for an informative webinar that will provide you with strategies and solutions for teaching alternative augmentative communication (AAC) your clients whether they are currently in school, at work, or for community living. This presentation will provide 9 strategies for helping the AAC user learn to communicate using their own system. Presenters will share and demonstrate strategies that include modeling techniques, communication enticements, and cueing strategies which are all research based and clinically proven.
