Free Talk on Augmentative and Alternative Communications (Oct 17th, UBC)

Posted October 7, 2013

On October 17th, Dr. Carole Zangari will speak on: “Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) in the Preschool Classroom: Infusing Core Language Intervention”

Details and RSVP online

Description: Speech-language pathologists and educators supporting preschoolers with autism and other developmental disabilities often need to infuse AAC interventions into classroom activities and routines. In many therapeutic settings, however, there is not a systematic process for teaching core vocabulary. This presentation describes a curricular approach in which core language is taught using early literacy activities, such as shared reading and writing lessons, typical classroom routines, and play/learning activities.
