An Implementation Tool Kit for AAC: Achieving Authentic Communication
- January 23, 2019 9:30 am - 11:00 am
This course will review elements of implementation to help participants achieve authentic communication with their clients.
Participants will learn about communication, a complex multimodal process, involving the interaction of three elements: functions of communication, the environment, and communication partners. This will include a discussion about how to move beyond requesting and what to do as the communication partner. Additionally, participants will learn about the importance of creating communication opportunities, and how to do so for their clients. Examples will be used throughout the seminar and participants will have hands on experience using several tools to help clients achieve authentic communication.
1. Participants will identify functions of communication.
2. Participants will define authentic communication.
3. Participants will identify communication partners and their roles.
4. Participants will define a communication opportunity.
5. Participants will analyze the environment and identify how to create communication opportunities.
This class will be offered for 0.15 ASHA CEUs (Introductory level, Professional area). See course handouts for instructions and the ASHA CEU Participant form.
Beginning Steps To Integrate AAC In Your Classroom
- January 25, 2019 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
But my student can’t talk, how do we expect them to read and write?! Can an AAC device really assist in developing literacy? Communication and literacy are directly connected.
By increasing the skills for one, we enhance the learning for the other skill. Students using AAC (Augmentative and Alternative Communication) devices can often be successful in a one on one therapy environment but trying to integrate the device into an academic setting can be difficult. This course will provide participants with an overview of modeling, core vocabulary and basic skills to integrate literacy in the classroom. In order to increase communication for students using AAC (Augmentative and Alternative Communication) devices, it is important to develop reading and writing skills for these individuals. In addition, reading and writing are critical to academic success. Participants will learn about specific implementation skills and features to increase communication and literacy in the classroom.
1. Participants will be able to define modeling in order to incorporate this strategy in the classroom.
2. Participants will be able to contrast core words vs. sight words and describe their importance in an academic environment.
3. Participants will be able to integrate literacy activities into a student’s day.
4. Participants will be able to demonstrate communication partner strategies to increase vocabulary development through shared reading activities.
5. Participants will be able to identify features of the Chat Editor to provide visual support and increased use of the device in an academic environment.
This class will be offered for 0.1 ASHA CEUs (Introductory level, Professional area). See course handouts for instructions and the ASHA CEU Participant form.
