Stakeholders and ASD: Partnering to Make AAC Work Better
The program was originally aired as part of the “Partner Instruction in AAC: Strategies for Building Circles of Support” online conference (June 13-25, 2012).
SLPs are challenged to provide effective service delivery to children on the autism spectrum and their families. Central to this challenge is finding time to create and implement programs that reflect recommended practice guidelines. An obvious solution is to expand service delivery to include stakeholders—that is, all the individuals active in a child's life. In this presentation, we'll discuss a comprehensive model of care and real-world illustrations of "stakeholder active" assessment and intervention.
You will be able to:
- discuss the concept of stakeholders as intervention agents
- describe three ways stakeholders can assist with dynamic communication assessment
- describe three ways stakeholders can assist with communication intervention
- discuss a comprehensive model of service delivery that takes into account the child, the stakeholders, and the physical and relationship contexts in which these individuals live
