Event Details

*This is a one (1) day event - Wednesday, October 25, 2017 


Audience: General Education Teachers and Administrators and Student Support Services Professionals, including Speech and Language Pathologists. Members of AT Teams are welcome. 

Presenter: Nikki Hendry and Smita Worah, SERC Consultants 

Description:  

Students with the most significant disabilities should have access to a communication system and assistive technology (AT) upon entering school so they can begin participating in academic and social activities from the start. If the students begin to use the communication system in kindergarten, by later grades they have built their capacity to demonstrate their knowledge using the Connecticut Alternate Assessment (CTAA).

This learning opportunity will provide an overview of the significance of augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) and AT for students taking the CTAA, as well as strategies educators can use to develop and promote language and communication skills. Five participating schools will also receive a half day of technical assistance on a first-come, first-served basis. SERC consultants will support these educators in their classrooms as they facilitate the participation of students using AAC during instruction and assessment.
