Understanding AAC: What to choose and why
This interactive workshop, run by a Speech-Language Pathologist will review a variety of AAC programs and low tech devices to help families understand their differences, benefits and why certain options may be better for their children based on their age, skill set, and development. She will provide a brief overview of what things to consider in choosing a device and tips on where to start. It will be followed by a question answer period to provide families with the opportunity to make individualized inquiries.
