Telepractice has the potential to connect individuals with communication disorders to specialists who can address their unique needs.

The featured authors explored a variety of topics, including the assessment of communication skills in minimally-verbal individuals with autism spectrum disorders, perspectives on the use of telepractice to support families of individuals in the use of a new speech generating device, and a comparison of on-site and telepractice language intervention with an AAC user.

Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) for School-Age Children With Intellectual Disabilities: Strategies for Long-Term Intervention
Format(s): eWorkshop
CEUs: 0.1
1.0
This web workshop examines how to construct an evidence-based intervention program for aided AAC instruction for children with intellectual disabilities. The focus of this program is school-age children whose communication is at the earliest stages ("emerging" and "context-dependent" communicators). Participants learn preferred practices for symbol and vocabulary selection, goal-setting, and intervention strategies. Some of the difficult tradeoffs in aided AAC are discussed, as well as methods for choosing between available options. The course presents two case studies to illustrate the decision-making process.
