Audience: It is strongly suggested that Educational Teams (may include paraprofessionals, teachers, service providers and/or administrators) attend together, but individuals may sign up, too
Participants will learn key features to promote expanded communication skills for students with complex communication needs. Each student has their own unique combination of multi-modal communication (speech, speech generating device, American Sign Language, gestures, etc.) and requires support by having communication partners model, prompt, and provide access to Alternative/Augmentative Communication (AAC) devices (low- and high-tech).
