Augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) Class
Date/Time: 02/21/2016 | 12:00 am
If you have a child on the Autism Spectrum, an AAC can be a helpful first step towards communicating.
AAC is an umbrella term that encompasses the communication methods used to supplement or replace speech or writing for those with impairments in the production or comprehension of spoken or written language.
The class is taught by a Mom with a 3 year old daughter on the spectrum who looked for an AAC and found it cost $400 just for the initial consultation to set one up, and decided to look for alternatives.
Topics that will be covered:
1. Learn how to setup an AAC to get started.
2. How to find equipment for under $100 including software!
3. How to setup an iPad so only the AAC is accessible.
4. Basic configurations and customizations.
