Effective Solutions to Ethical Dilemmas in AAC

ASHA live webinar

"Augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) can be life-changing for many individuals, but due to its complex and commercial nature, it also comes with a myriad of potential ethical concerns. Clinicians can improve AAC assessment and intervention outcomes for those they serve by being confident they are making ethically informed decisions about AAC use. This webinar will use case studies to discuss common ethical dilemmas encountered in the use of AAC, leaning on the ASHA Code of Ethics for support. The presenter will outline a process for ethical decision-making and share trends in school and health care settings that affect ethical decision-making as it relates to AAC use.
