Parent Event- Informational Session- Communication Device Training for Friends and Family of AAC Users
Target Audience: Family and friends of communication device (AAC) users from NTDSE and NTDSE Member Districts (D67, 68, 69, 70, 71, 72, 73, 73.5, & 74- Skokie, Morton Grove, Lincolnwood and Niles). Siblings and communication device users are highly encouraged to join! This is an Informational Session. Follow-up dates/times will be coordinated around participants' requests. If you are unable to attend this session but would like to learn more, please reach out to your child's Speech-Language Pathologist or to Matt Baud, Assistive Technology Coordinator at mbaud@ntdse.org. Learning to use an augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) system or a communication device is like learning a second language. The best way to learn a second language is by hearing others speak the language across a variety of activities over a period of time. Talking to a child while simultaneously touching or modeling on the communication device throughout activities is essential for your child to learn how to use it to communicate. During this course, participants will learn what modeling is, why we model on communication devices, and how to model at home. Throughout the course, participants will see videos of other parents using communication devices in the home and will have lots of hands-on practice Participants will be encouraged to video themselves using the device during one to two regular occurring activities at home so the instructors can provide feedback.
Zoom Link will be shared via email prior to the event/ Email professionallearning@ntdse.org
