AAC and Literacy: How to Get Started

Description

Research has proven that communication, language, and literacy skills develop in concert with one another. However, when it comes to individuals who use Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) it is often thought that they need to develop a certain level of skill in communication with their AAC system before they can benefit from literacy instruction. This workshop will outline why that statement is false, and review steps to getting started in providing literacy instruction for your AAC user.


Learning Outcomes: Upon successful completion, participants will be able to: 

·        Describe the literacy and language connection

·        Discuss how core words support powerful communication

·        Describe the role symbols play in literacy

·        List two emergent literacy strategies that support individuals who use AAC


We look forward to learning with you in our live virtual session. This course provides an opportunity to earn ASHA CEU’s and will not be recorded. If you are unable to attend, check out our Learning Hub for other learning opportunities.
