Effectively Teaching AAC: Beyond the Therapy Session

The teaching of an AAC device goes beyond what a speech pathologist can achieve in a therapy session. Even the most skilled therapist will struggle to achieve authentic communication if certain foundational components are not in place outside the therapy room. This presentation not only looks at ways to improve therapy, but it describes the foundational components necessary to effectively teach AAC and overcome barriers. Specific implementation strategies and tools will be shared.

Prior attendance of a 1-Day LAMP class is helpful, but not mandatory.

Participants will be able to:

  1. describe 4 foundational components necessary for successful AAC implementation
  2. discuss 4 barriers to successful AAC implementation and describe ways to overcome these barriers
  3. identify 5 or more resources to support AAC users in achieving authentic communication


5 minutes- Introductions and Disclosures
15 minutes - Background, Overview of Project and Student Outcomes
60 minutes - Dissection of the 4 Foundational Components: Implementation Strategies and Tools
10 minutes - Conclusion and Questions
