STAR

Sharing Treatment and Autism Resources

Augmentative Alternative Communication (AAC) Systems are supports used to help individuals with complex communicative needs. For children with autism who are minimally verbal, AAC Systems can help them communicate and interact with others. This presentation will focus on offering practical tips and tricks for obtaining and using both picture-based and speech-generating AAC Systems in the home and community settings.

Presenter:

Melissa Subock, M.S., CCC/SLP

Melissa is a speech-language pathologist at CARD. She started as an Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapist, working privately with families in Maryland until completing her graduate training as an SLP. Her areas of focus include early detection and intervention of toddlers with ASD and Augmentative Alternative Communication (AAC) evaluations, treatment, and parent training. While her goal is to offer AAC supports to children as toddlers and preschoolers, she works with children and adolescents of all ages and ability levels.
