Webinar: Augmentative Communication Apps - Making the Best Choice for the Best AAC Voice

  • November 28, 2012
  • Time: 1:00 p.m. EST 

About the webinar

The process of identifying the optimum AAC App (s) for an individual with complex communication needs begins by determining whether the individual would be best served by this tool as opposed to other strategies.  If so, the next steps is to understand the basic features that match the individual’s skills and needs. This webinar provides information to assist in navigating these new options and new times in order to provide, where appropriate, the most functional AAC solution using mobile technology (e.g., iPod Touch, iPad).

Participants will leave with:

  • A clearer understanding of the variety of AAC Apps available
  • Features to be considered when making these decisions with real-life examples
  • Ideas based on case examples
  • Additional online resources for further learning
