This session is designed to build the knowledge and skill that EVERY person who supports a student with complex communication needs should demonstrate in order to foster the student's skill development with augmentative & alternative forms of communication (AAC). When the whole team has a shared understanding and is working together to support and honor multimodal communication with core words and a variety of language functions, this empowers the AAC user to advocate for their needs and preferences and creates more inclusive opportunities for meaningful participation in academic and social settings.
