Guest Speaker Presentation:

Uniquely Challenging, Always Fun: AAC for Children with Complex Bodies

Amanda Soper, MS, CCC-SLP

This presentation will explore how we can support children with complex bodies who use AAC. While no one formal definition of complex bodies exists, many children with significant physical and sensory impairments are often labeled as such. We learn much about our world through motor and sensory exploration. For many of our children with complex bodies, they don’t have the same experience. It can be challenging to support language development for children unable to independently experience many language concepts. Fortunately, innovative and creative SLPs, OTs, teachers, and parents are constantly learning about and implementing new strategies that help our children grow their communication skills.

Join us to learn assessment and intervention techniques with a focus on vision impairments including Cortical Vision Impairment (CVI), motor impairments in the moderate to severe/profound range, and hearing impairments including Deafness amongst children with intellectual disabilities. Learn to use assessment tools to develop AAC related IEP goals and to modify treatment and AAC systems as needed. Tips, tricks, and specific lesson ideas will be shared related to literacy and language intervention.
