Webinar as Part of a Virtual Conference, March 8th, 2021, with the The Assistive Technology Conference of New England. For 2020 and 2021, the Conference will feature different AT/AAC-Focused sessions from November 2020 through May 2021. They have designed a program that covers a range of AT/AAC topic areas in a half day format to allow for a deep dive without a full day commitment.
* Versatile & Engaging Activities for Teaching Language and Literacy to Students with Complex Needs – Participants will explore a variety of engaging and customizable activities that can be used to support the development of communication and literacy skills in students with complex needs.
* After a quick review of best practices in both literacy instruction (for complex learners) and AAC implementation, focus will shift to an array of easy to replicate activities that can be used and re-used with students.
* Ideas will be provided for including students who use AAC as well as students with varied access needs and the need for visual modifications.
* Participants will learn about free and low-cost tools that can be used to create and deliver these activities. Special attention will be paid to activities that can be used either in-person or virtually.
* Opportunities for hands on practice with selected tools will be provided, as time allows.
* Attendees will leave with digital access to the resources shared during the workshop.
* Presented by: Lauren Enders MA, CCC-SLP.
