Ongoing Assessment: A Guide to Intervention Planning


October 5 OR 14, 2022


This webinar explores the benefits of using ongoing AAC assessment as a means for guiding intervention that results in the development of communicative competence. It will define and discuss specific areas and skills that determine communicative competence. Although many tools for ongoing assessment are available, this webinar will explore The AAC Profile: A Continuum of Learning, that assists in evaluating current skill development and suggests treatment goals that impact additional skill acquisition needed for AAC system use and progress toward full potential functioning. This webinar will be focused on children; however, information can also be used in addressing adult AAC use and development of communicative competence.
