Presented by: Lauren S. Enders, CCC-SLP

This half-day session will provide practical strategies and resources to support effective AAC implementation. Participants will learn through a mix of direct instruction and hands-on activities and will leave with a “toolbox” of resources that can be used to support day-to-day AAC instruction. Topics will include vocabulary selection with a focus on core vocabulary, principles and use of Aided Language Stimulation, and engaging activities for teaching language to AAC learners. Participants will learn a variety of fun, low-cost, and re-usable strategies for engaging AAC users in learning by using age-appropriate manipulatives, games, texts, and apps.

Audience: Special Education Teachers, Speech Therapists, Supervisors/Administrators, Assistive Technology Specialists, Occupational Therapists, Physical Therapists, Parents, and Paraprofessionals
