AT Series: A Closer Look at Access

Advanced Strategies: Joining the Journey, and not Just Looking for Simple Solutions


Session Dates

Thursday September 30, 2021 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM - Webinar


The focus of this session will be taking an “in depth” look at various aspects of access, including scanning, eye gaze, equipment, activity, classrooms, school days, and an individual student functioning within a group and alone independently. As a whole, this process is akin to a journey.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify two specific challenges any student faces when using scanning as an access technique with AAC.
  • Identify three issues of inaccessibility within the classroom that can be shared and, in time, altered with team support.
  • Identify at least two times in a week when modeling of language, partner-assisted scanning, and AAC and/or access to AT may be added to optimize interactions with students who are non-speaking.
