Language Development Through AAC: Dual-Symbol Immersion

Hear MY Voice educates and trains educators and families to promote and support acquisition of language through augmentative alternative communication. This two-day course is designed to provide a new perspective on the implementation of Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) in order to assist the symbol speaker in developing language through AAC. The hands-on practice with classroom teachers, speech therapists, and parents provides engaged participants the allotted time to process and retain ideas that can be put into practice with students..

The course will include interactive lecture to present theories and research that are the foundation of Dual Symbol Immersion. Additionally, interactive activities and experiments will take place to further understanding, allow for experiential learning, and encourage participation. Demonstration of implementation of theories will take place, and attendees will practice implementation in various scenarios with various individuals. Brainstorming of solutions for various roadblocks will take place in groups and as a whole.
