Students with visual impairments and multiple disabilities often require Augmentative-Alternative Communication (AAC) strategies. This course provides AAC strategies for educators who work with these students.
Discussions, lecture, videos, simulation activities, readings, and case studies facilitate the participant’s application of integrating AAC devices into a student’s existing communication system.
The unique needs of a VI learner who is an early communicator is considered in the context of classroom-based AAC interventions to increase engagement, support meaningful communication routines, and build early and age-appropriate literacy skills.
