Presenter(s): Amy Wright, MCD, CCC-SLP

When individuals with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) experience changes in speech, they often look to SLPs for guidance and hope. SLPs have many tools at their disposal that can make a dramatic difference in patients’ quality of life. This webinar will describe practical, patient-focused methods for AAC assessment and implementation for individuals with ALS that are based on an individual’s current strengths and needs.

  • Explain the importance of identifying patients’ priorities, expectations, current/future needs, and support systems
  • Maximize use of no-tech, low-tech, and high-tech AAC – including off-the-shelf personal technology – to facilitate communication
  • Identify barriers to and misconceptions about AAC success for individuals with ALS and how to overcome or avoid them
