Session 5A AAC Apps: Considerations for Selecting, Customizing, and Getting Started – Part 22:45 – 3:45
Speaker: Lauren Enders
In this second session of a two-part webinar, we will continue our exploration of available robust AAC apps that run on Apple (iOS) devices with a focus on motor plan-based AAC apps. We will also go over a few robust AAC apps that run on other platforms (Android, Windows, Kindle Fire, Web). We will examine each app, highlight its unique features, and discuss how those specific features can be used to address specific user needs. We will also touch on other considerations when selecting an AAC app including protection, portability, amplification, and access.
