Complex Communication Needs: Beyond the Basics

Complex Communication Needs: Beyond the Basics

If you have students with complex communication needs using augmentative & alternative communication (AAC) on your caseload, then you’re in the right place! Sometimes therapy can feel tricky with this population, but it doesn’t have to be that way. In this course, we will explore best practices for treating complex communication needs along with activities that go beyond the basics you already know and support the curriculum in the classroom. Using what you already know about language intervention and pairing it with evidence-based practice for AAC, we will have you feeling confident to take on this next school year.
