Description:

Over 25% of the AAC evaluations completed in Arizona are in Whether you are part of a special education or general education classroom, communication is happening all day long. Join me to look at the student's day and identify areas in which AAC could be utilized, and when low tech or other options would best meet their communication needs. Teachers and paraeducators do not have time or the skills to 'edit on the fly' so let's be sure that expectations are realistic and appropriate vocabulary is available all the time. 

 

Objectives

Participants will identify functional vocabulary to target in multiple settings and therefore increasing success. 

 

Participants will understand why and when to use low tech vs high tech to meet communication needs throughout the school day.
