June 25, 2019

This week, the TWT team is pleased to share the first half of the AAC Apps Update 2018! This conference session was originally presented by Lucas, Chris, and Rachel as part of the Special Apps Update Conference 2018. 

Before we present this week’s session, Chris and Rachel discuss reading specialists, being aware of compensatory measures when assessing children with autism, and more!

Key ideas this week include:

🔑 AAC users may benefit from working with a reading specialist and/or from including a reading specialist on their interdisciplinary team. 

🔑 When assessing receptive language, you must determine whether a child really understands the language and isn’t using compensatory measures, such as visuals or gestures.

🔑 School districts should consider teaching the basics of AAC to all students and staff!
