AAC for Early Intervention: Myths and Realities (WEB19090)

Presenter(s): MaryAnn Romski, PhD, CCC-SLP; Rose A. Sevcik, PhD
Course Description


This session provides an overview of myths – widely held but false beliefs – that have hampered the use of AAC in early intervention services (e.g., that a child must be a certain age to benefit from AAC, or that AAC hinders or stops speech development). Presenters MaryAnn Romski and Rose A. Sevcik provide evidence to refute these common myths and discuss strategies for how to debunk them. This course is a recorded session from the 2019 online conference “Birth to Three: Working Together to Serve Children and Their Families.”

  • identify myths that hamper AAC service delivery to young children receiving early intervention services
  • implement strategies to debunk these myths
