This session addresses the hesitation and uncertainty surrounding the early implementation of Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC). There is often a feeling in our stomach that tells us our client needs AAC before we begin seeking it. What stops us from trialing AAC earlier? Are we not sure if they really need AAC? Maybe they just need intensive therapy? What if I don’t have access to any AAC apps? An overview and practical information will be provided to determine which populations would benefit from AAC. Participants will review a variety of case studies and determine if an individual is a candidate for high tech AAC or what alternative supports would be beneficial. This course will also present resources for access to high tech AAC as well as how to find additional support.
