When people who use AAC participate in team or committee meetings, they are generally welcomed by others in attendance. That’s a great start, but for the experience to be successful, we have to go beyond good intentions and use solid inclusive practices so that the group benefits from the perspective or information shared by the person using AAC. Helping people with AAC needs be full participants in team and other group meetings is an area where SLPs can make a positive impact. In this video by Communication Disabilities Access Across Canada, we learn how we can go beyond supporting the individual who uses AAC (which may be necessary but not sufficient) and help the team develop good practices for inclusive practices.
