Effective Solutions to Ethical Dilemmas in AAC (On Demand Webinar) (WEB18219)

Presenter(s): Kathryn Clapsaddle, MS, CCC-SLP
Course Description

This webinar uses case studies to discuss common ethical dilemmas encountered in the use of AAC, leaning on the ASHA Code of Ethics for support. The presenter outlines a process for ethical decision-making and shares trends in school and health care settings that affect ethical decision-making as it relates to AAC use.
