There is a lot of confusion about doing an assessment for a communication device, what apps should be used and what to do for intervention. Research has guided the way for creating best practices that lead to positive results in the most efficient time possible. Unfortunately, these best practices are not what people intuitively think of when working with a nonverbal child with a communication device. This workshop will provide a brief introduction to what the research says about selecting a device, an app, and how to interact with a child using a communication device.
Participants will be able to:
- List 3 augmentative and alternative communication apps that accommodate best practices.
- List 2 research-based intervention strategies.
