Leveraging the Power of Synchronous and Asynchronous Tele-AAC Services (SIG 18) (WEB19418)

Presenter(s): Nerissa Hall, PhD, CCC-SLP, ATP; Hillary Jellison, MS, CCC-SLP, ATP
Course Description

While telepractice and tele-AAC services are often thought of as real-time services provided directly to an individual, asynchronous tele-AAC services that include highly individualized and clinically relevant content can be quite effective also. This course explores tele-AAC services as a continuum of support, highlighting the dynamic role of asynchronous tele-AAC in supporting not only the individual (with implementation and generalization, in particular) but also essential stakeholders, including communication partners.

This course is part of the SIGnature Series, a collection of courses developed by volunteers from ASHA’s Special Interest Groups, who share practical, evidence-based suggestions and solutions based on their in-depth knowledge, clinical experiences, and passion for their specialty areas. This course was developed by SIG 18: Telepractice.

Learning Outcomes
You will be able to:

  • Describe the four major types of telepractice service delivery options (synchronous, asynchronous, direct, and indirect) and how they can be fluid
  • List at least three critical stakeholders involved in tele-AAC service delivery
  • Identify three benefits of asynchronous service delivery
