AACs have changed so much in the last 40 years, but we’ve made great strides with these devices. SLP Susan Berkowitz discusses how she’s adapted AACs over her 47-year-career to meet the various needs of her students. If you’re working with a student who has an AAC, Susan’s advice will be invaluable for you.
One of the best things about SLPs is the creativity they apply to find games, strategies, videos, or techniques that will help their students succeed. BCBA Shayna Gaunt takes the same creative approach to adapt assessments so that she can meet the needs of her students no matter where they’re at.
Part of my passion in my work is helping everyone I work with find some way that they can communicate with the people around them. For Dr. Mary Barbera, her passion is empowering parents who have young children with autism to learn skills that will help their children lead happier, healthier lives. I think you’re going to love this conversation because it’s full of resources that you can turn to in order to help young children with autism.
I am dedicated to helping SLPs and other professionals provide systematic language instruction with ease. Working with students with autism and other complex communication disorders can be challenging.
I am here to help, by providing professional development and real life examples of what I do in my daily practice. I am looking forward to collaborating with you!
