Evidence Based Practice (EBP)

Presented by: Rachael Langley, MA, CCC-SLP

We know that learners with communication challenges have thoughts, opinions, and ideas of their own. How do we give them the tools to tell us what they’re thinking? This session will talk about tools and strategies to support early communication skills, including how to begin using AAC (augmentative/alternative communication). During this hour, we will address the following questions: 

What is the role of the communication partner in early AAC use?

Presented by: Alice Shillingsburg, BCBA-D 

Description: Approximately 30% of individuals diagnosed with autism fail to develop vocal communication. For these individuals, Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) systems such as manual signs, picture exchange communication system (PECS), and speech generating devices (SGD) are often used. Numerous studies have shown the effectiveness of selection-based pictorial systems to promote functional communication.
