SWAAAC Summer Symposium 2013: Interdisciplinary Augmentative Alternative Communication




The Conference Center at Adams 12, 1500 East 128th Avenue, Thornton, CO 80241

Start Date

6/3/2013 8:00 AM

End Time

6/4/2013 4:30 PM


Individuals with complex communication needs (CCN), require the services of a speech language pathologist (SLP) trained to provide AAC services. But truly effective, comprehensive intervention does not begin and end with an SLP. Motor therapists must address access issues, itinerants need to be consulted regarding sensory issues, special and general education teachers must accommodate, differentiate, implement and integrate across environments, and parents are central to the transfer of skills in the home and community. All communication partners need to be educated and trained in the strategies and techniques that support individuals with CCNs.
The 2013 SWAAAC Summer Symposium will feature 3 tracks of professional development to address a variety of interdisciplinary AAC service prospectives.
