Many communicators can benefit from language supports as a supplement or replacement for vocalized speech. Sometimes it's hard to know where to start, or how to implement an AAC strategy that can work in the classroom and also at home. In this session we'll discuss low- and high-tech AAC including examples of how these tools have been implemented from both a therapist and parent perspective.
