Tanna Neufeld, MS, CCC-SLP will be presenting at the 2017 Infant and Early Childhood Conference in Tacoma!
Session Title: Using AAC Strategies to Support Language Development in Early Intervention Settings (Breakout Session C11)
The importance of early intervention services to support children with delays in communication development is well known. Although research has also established the need for appropriate AAC intervention during these critical years, many non-verbal or limited verbal children will continue to enter Kindergarten without a reliable system of AAC strategies to support communication success. This talk will briefly explore practical strategies for assessing the supported communication needs of children’ in the earliest stages of communication development. A larger focus will be placed on presenting intervention strategies around the use of no tech, low, tech, and high tech AAC systems to support receptive and expressive language development and promote communication competency for today and the future! Attendees will also be provided with take-home materials and online resources for further learning and exploration.
