Session 1: January 15, 2020
Children with complex motor and/or sensory needs, who would benefit from AAC, have many challenges. Knowing where to begin and how to progress can be daunting. A 3-step approach to building tools, which teases apart Participation, Access, and Language (PAL) will be discussed. We will discuss the rationale for the PAL approach and demonstrate the process through case studies, exploring how each of the 3 areas of PAL were addressed with each child. Examples will be provided of how the 3 areas, when given time to develop, can come together in a comprehensive, multi-modal AAC system.
Virtual two part workshop. No charge. Facilitated by Kim Elliott, Carrie Luse, and Kathy Howery
