There's a lot of buzz about the increased availability of augmentative and alternative communications (AAC) applications, but how do we really know which tools and methods will be most beneficial to our own students and children?   How are expensive AAC devices funded in New Jersey and are low-tech solutions worth the investment?  Learn how parents, teachers, speech therapists and case managers can work together to allow kids with autism and others who cannot communicate verbally to tell us what they want and need.

This timely event will offer a process-oriented overview of the steps necessary to create a person-first strategy for the use of AAC tools.  Speakers and panelists will provide participants with practical advice and perspectives on:
 
-Effectively integrating AAC into classroom routines and activities

-AAC Strategies to reduce behavior concerns and enhance quality of life

-Evaluating high-tech and low-tech AAC tools based on an individual's needs

-Selecting  vocabulary goals to support appropriate and meaningful communication

-Parent/professional collaboration to enhance a child's communication ability at home, in school and in the community 

-Funding of AAC devices
