Talk the Talk and Walk the Walk: Modeling, Questioning, and Encouraging Language Development in AAC

Free Closing the Gap Webinar sponsored by Saltillo Corporation

"This webinar will present research-based techniques and strategies to increase communication for individuals using a speech generating device (SGD) via communication partner education. Participants will learn about communication and communication characteristics common to both partners, how to increase communication by modifying their own behaviors, six techniques to incorporate into everyday communicative contexts, and two strategies to use within a shared book reading context.

The webinar will provide foundational information for various communication partners (e.g., parents, teachers, classmates) to encourage positive behavior change and impact language learning and use for individuals using AAC. The presented techniques and strategies are evidence-based and easily implementable across settings and communication partners for generalization."
