Description:

Every Move Counts, Clicks and Chats (emc3) provides “a sensory based approach to communication and assistive technology for individuals with significant sensory motor differences, developmental differences and autism.” This webinar is the second in a four part series doing a book study on the book by Jane Edgar Korsten, MS/SLP, Terry Vernon Foss, M.Ed and Lisa Mayer Berry, MOTR/L.

Part 4 will review the “Chats” aspect of the book.  This information will help match features of a voice output device to the individual so that AAC is selected to fit the individual needs of the user rather than trying to get the user to adapt to the device.
