Guest Speaker Presentation:

Sustainable AAC Intervention and Supports for Adults with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities

Gail Van Tatenhove, P.A., M.S., CCC-SLP

Many adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) are not getting appropriate AAC intervention or supports. Many used some type of AAC when in school but are now living in the adult world with no reliable means of communication. In this presentation, Gail will be addressing three major topics: (1) 10 key issues that impact AAC system use with adults with IDD; (2) communication intervention the promotes a positive quality of life; and (3) training strategies for building sustainability in the support and use of AAC systems. Small group activities will allow all participants to discuss how the information in this presentation can be applied in their work. Small group projects, as time allows, will also be completed, and shared with all participants.
