Description:

Switch Access to AAC

Practical access to AAC apps is best accomplished through a team approach, including the SLP, OT, teacher, para educator and parent.  The reality is, the SLP often is the one to set up and begin implementation of AAC apps with little support.  This webinar will provide an overview of switch access to the top AAC apps.  Demonstration will be provided on how to set up the switch access in each app, as well as key features/settings that may improve access.  Apps to be covered include Proloquo2Go, Proloquo4Text, TouchChat, Predictable, and Sounding board.

Learning Objectives:

Participants will learn how to set up switch access to popular AAC apps.

Participants will learn the pros and cons of switch interfaces for the iPad

Participants will receive resource links on switch access to iPad apps
