Language and Literacy Intervention for Students with CVI who use AAC


February 22, 2022


Many students with complex disabilities including CVI use alternative augmentative communication (AAC) systems to communicate.  SLPs may lack understanding of how the visual characteristics of CVI can impact the development of language and literacy skills for these students.  This webinar is a follow-up to Seeing Success:  AAC Intervention for Children with CVI.  Specific strategies will be shared to help students make progress toward their language and literacy skills using AAC.  The presenter will also discuss accommodations and modifications for AAC systems and intervention to support students with CVI.
