A Team-Oriented Approach to AAC: Therapist-Driven Insights to Improving Augmentative Communication

For the past two years we have worked with over 50 speech therapists, OTs, AT Specialists and parents discussing the current and future state of AAC. One common theme we kept hearing was that AAC implementations don't succeed as often as they should. This often seems to happen when there's not a strong enough support system around the communicator. Join us for this webinar to learn about team-enabling technology that can lead to more consistent AAC implementations, and how it's implemented in the new CoughDrop AAC app.
