Webinars

Build Capacity in AAC Implementation Across Environments by Shifting Mindsets

The need to build capacity while supporting students with complex communication needs is critical. SLP’s and AAC teams need to deepen and expand their knowledge base in AAC implementation. Having the knowledge in the hands of one “expert” is not a sustainable model of support for AAC. To ensure a larger impact, we must move to a model that builds capacity. What tools and strategies can we use to shift the current “expert” mindset? Examples of how multiple district level teams embraced a capacity building model supported by a county level AAC team will be shared. Participants will be encouraged to consider their current state and determine what shifts can be made toward a capacity building model.


Bolstering Family Involvement with Tools and Techniques to Advance Learners with Significant Disabilities

This session will illustrate how to create an activity toolkit with adapted tools to share with families for follow-up reinforcement and practice at home besides aiding classroom instruction. Students with severe and multiple disabilities require multiple opportunities to practice academic, behavioral, and functional life skills and to generalize learning in a variety of contexts. Paired with techniques and tips, the activity toolkit will empower educators to guide families to continue with practicing the skills at home with their child to make sustained progress and retain the skills.
