Virtual TechKnowledgy Conference 2016-2017 Webinar: "Say what you wanna say"


Presenters: Linda Oggel, M.A., CCC-SLP, Speech and Language Pathologist and Mona Pruett, M.S., OT/L, Program Specialist, Virginia Department of Education’s Training and Technical Assistance Center at VCU

When voice output devices are initially introduced, the selection of vocabulary is essential. Limited “real estate” on low-tech communication devices (4, 8, 12 cells) makes vocabulary choice a fundamental and critical goal. Vocabulary selections on dynamic AAC devices are often overwhelming to AAC users and teachers and this session will offer strategies to make that task easier. This session will review the importance of vocabulary selection and how to choose the most meaningful core vocabulary. In addition, resources and strategies will be shared to make language experiences meaningful and fun.

PLEASE NOTE: These sessions will be archived for later viewing.
