The Integrated Model of Communication: Balancing Conversation and Literacy instruction for Students who use AAC

This workshop is for anyone interested in improving the quality of instruction available to school age students who use alternative and augmentative communication (AAC) with a range of student ability levels and devices, (light to high-tech). Too often in therapy or educational programs designed for children who use AAC systems the skills (linguistic, literacy and social) are taught in isolation rather than in an integrated manner. This presentation will demonstrate how to find the balance between social relationships, conversation, core word instruction/generative language and participation in the classroom and therapy programs. Some favorite tools and solutions will be shared with participants.

For information please contact Trish Bartlett: email tbartlet@monmouth.edu or call 732-263-5487.
