[TechKnowledgy 2021-22] Augmentative and Alternative Communication Instruction for Highly Impacted Students with ASD: High- and Low-Tech Strategies to Increase Communication


TechKnowledgy Conference


Presented by: Melanie Derry and Carol Schall

While many students with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) learn effective verbal communication skills, there are still those learners who require Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) techniques and devices to communicate. In this recorded webinar, the presenters discuss and model evidence-based practices to embed AAC device use across the school day to increase communication. In addition, they also review ways to ensure families participate in the implementation of AAC. Finally, the presenters explore creative ways to increase access to AAC devices across the Commonwealth.
