5 Summary and questions
Very informative! I loved the administrator functions of the coughdrop app!
great ideas for support
Quick, fast-paced but covered all the AAC essentials. As a home health therapist, I enjoyed some of the ideas to give parents so they can help the teachers and other staff implement use and get more carryover. Also, really love the logging aspects that CoughDrop offers! Some many of these dedicated systems need this kind of fresh perspective and empower the families to support and facilitate their children's communication!!
Anne had a very pleasant approach and was very supportive to those who are not familiar or comfortable with AAC. Generous to share her videos and materials. Brian's presentation was high energy, but also easy to follow. Packed with great information, short story examples, and explaining/clarifying uses and details.
Very informative course for SLPs new to AAC.
This was a fantastic course. Thanks to both of the presenters for their practical tips and ideas.
