3 Presentation Handouts with an Important AAC Message

We don’t get to as many AAC conference presentations as we would like to, and are always appreciative when the speakers generously post their handouts online. Here are some that we think you might appreciate, too.

Sarah Blackstone, Krista Wilkinson, and colleagues: We are not paying enough attention to the emotional development of children with AAC needs. Development of Emotional Competencies in Children with Complex Communication Needs: Implications for Practice and Research Sarah Blackstone, Krista Wilkinson, Jen Thistle, with Gabriela Rangel, Dale Epstein, & Jacob Feldman   If you know of other presentation handouts that prAACtical professionals might enjoy, please share the link below.

Dr. Sarah Blackstone and colleagues talked about the developmental sequence in which emotional competence emerges.  They are working on an observation and interview tool used to collect information on a child’s emotional development and the caregiver strategies. They are planning a pilot study with the tool they are developing and actively looking for volunteers to use this tool with children who are developmentally between 12 months and 10 years. – Terry Foss and and Jane Korsten did an interesting presentation called Promptology 101 where they reviewed some...
