Talking the Talk: Let’s Get Interactive

Do you have students with complex communication needs who need to improve their communication skills?

This interactive session will give you the tools to support students to actually use Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) – low tech or high tech or no tech!

Tools will be provided to help you support students to communicate more effectively in social settings and with their peers.

Workshop participants will:

  • Engage in multiple “try it” activities
  • Learn practical strategies
