WHAT: AAC in Action is a training program for communication partners with the goal of supporting AAC users to expand their communication skills. Participants will gain skills through video analysis, live demonstrations, and small group assignments. Each month, the overall workshop format will remain the same to invite new participants to acquire skills, as well as to help returning participants build their mastery across different communication settings. Each month's hands-on activities may change to best support the needs of the attendees. Partner training skills targeted will include using:
- Aided Language Stimulation
- Expectant Delay
- Non-Verbal Prompts
- Contingent Responding
WHEN: 2nd Sunday of the month, 6:30pm - 8:00pm January - June (January 8th, February 12th, March 12th, April 9th, May 14th, June 11th)
