Don’t Wait to Communicate: Why Your Child Needs Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC)
For children whose disabilities affect their ability to speak verbally, there are many different types of technologies that can give voice to all the thoughts, wants, wishes, and feelings that struggle to come out. In this webinar, parents and professionals will hear the perspective of one parent’s journey as her daughter grew into a confident communicator using AAC. Led by Dana Nieder, author of the popular special needs blog Uncommon Sense, this webinar will teach parents and professionals the importance of presuming competence in a child’s communicative abilities as well as tips for how to plan and build a rich vocabulary for a child using AAC.
