Developing Engaging AAC Sessions for Secondary and Post-Secondary Students (PD102229)

Presenter(s): Ashley Larisey, MS, CCC-SLP
Course Description

SLPs who work with older students who use AAC are challenged to develop engaging intervention activities that are age-respectful as well as integrate literacy, classroom curriculum, and post-secondary training. This session explores how to use communicator profiles to provide scaffolding for secondary and post-secondary students who use AAC within the context of meaningful, engaging activities.

This course is a recorded session from the 2021 online conference “Expanding AAC: Accessible Strategies for Functional Communication.”
