When individuals with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) experience changes in speech, they often look to SLPs for guidance and hope. SLPs have many tools at their disposal that can make a dramatic difference in patients’ quality of life. This webinar will describe practical, patient-focused methods for AAC assessment and implementation for individuals with ALS that are based on an individual’s current strengths and needs.

Learning Outcomes
You will be able to:

  • Explain the importance of identifying patients’ priorities, expectations, current/future needs, and support systems
  • Maximize use of no-tech, low-tech, and high-tech AAC – including off-the-shelf personal technology – to facilitate communication
  • Identify barriers to and misconceptions about AAC success for individuals with ALS and how to overcome or avoid them

What is a webinar?

Webinars are slide-based presentation and question-and-answer sessions that you can watch live at a pre-scheduled date and time or on-demand at your leisure after the live event occurs.
