Video of the Week: Beyond the Basics - Core Considerations in AAC Intervention
A- A+

Cloudy with a (big) chance of AAC? The weather was fine at AAC in the Cloud conference, an online event hosted by the wonderful team at CoughDrop. Over two days, there were three tracks of AAC presentations and a fun keynote by Kate Ahern.

Many thanks to Brian Whitmer and his colleagues for inviting me to participate.

    I loved your presentation, really interesting and great analogy using the pizza. I might borrow that in my training to staff. Could you direct me to the persons name who developed the 3 types of learners please. I also would like to get carers to self evaluate their interactions with their child and wondered whether you have data collection sheets you could share with me which looks at the type of language they use. I am aware of Senner and Baud’s S’MORRES information which is fantastic. Is there any others?

    Thank you for this BLOG it is truly fantastic.

      Thanks for those kind words, Jenny. You are welcome to borrow the pizza analogy, and if you want to use some of the images, that’s fine too. Here is the link to the initial post with some of those pictures: http://bit.ly/1ExCFro . Dr. Pat Dowden from the University of Washington was the one to have popularized the characterization of AAC learners at different levels. There are a bunch of assessment forms here http://praacticalaac.org/praactical/aac-assessment-forms/ and some additional ones scattered across other posts. Thank you for stopping by!
