Creating AAC-Friendly Environments
Already an ASHA Learning Pass subscriber?
This session explores evidence-based strategies to make environments communicatively accessible to students who use aided language systems. The speaker discusses barriers these students may encounter in language learning, how we can proactively reduce these barriers, and how we can use peers and other communication partners to create language-supportive environments using AAC. The session also includes reflections on what worked and what didn't from students who used AAC systems in classrooms.
This course is a recorded session from the 2021 online conference “Expanding AAC:
Accessible Strategies for Functional Communication.”
You will be able to:
- critically evaluate environments in which students who use aided communication are engaged
- develop more communicatively accessible learning environments
- advocate for the needs of children and young adults who require AAC to develop communication and language
