Incorporating Comprehensive Literacy Instruction into AAC Intervention (On-Demand Registration)
Incorporating Comprehensive Literacy Instruction into AAC Intervention
Available November 17, 2022 - November 17, 2027 | 113 minutes | 0.1 ASHA CEUs
The purpose of this session is to provide attendees with the background knowledge necessary for understanding the different types of literacy instruction models that are utilized and which may be the most appropriate for our students and clients. Students and clients with complex communication needs are often viewed as being incapable of learning and engaging in emergent literacy activities, however, this is a common misconception. This session will discuss how Speech Language Pathologists can select appropriate activities and materials that can be easily incorporated into AAC intervention to support emergent literacy skills. Participants who attend will have the opportunity to view previously recorded literacy-based activities being incorporated during speech and language therapy sessions. Participants will also leave with a digital resource containing downloadable and printable materials to immediately begin using with their clients/students.
