Free webinar from PRC's Language Lab (presented by Jane Odom)
"Given the advancements in and increased access to tablet technology, a wide variety of AAC solutions are available. Although hardware and software are ever changing, the need for quality therapeutic support remains constant. This talk will focus on essential therapeutic supports to promote language acquisition and effective communication with a variety AAC devices and language systems. The focus will be on the importance of including all of a child’s learning environments in the plan including home and school. By using the Language Monitor built into many devices, we were able to develop and full therapeutic plan for a classroom including the teacher, speech therapist, classroom assistants as well as parents and friends at school. It turned out that many of the verbal students in the classroom benefited from the implementation methods that were put in place and increased their literacy and writing skills."
