This webinar presents an organizational framework for planning AAC intervention that maximizes communication for children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). The course presents strategies to support children with ASD and their communication partners, including clinicians, parents, and teachers. The speaker defines the “mask of attention” for children with ASD; discusses factors that contribute to the challenge of looking behind this mask to increase communication; and demonstrates how to plan and organize a goal-driven AAC intervention session.

Learning Objectives:
You will be able to :

  • describe a framework for analyzing communication behaviors of a child with ASD to determine strengths and needs
  • document the factors contributing to the perception of inattention in a child, and determine an action plan to support communication and participation
  • create measurable AAC goals to maximize participation of children who use AAC with communication partners across environments
