Interacting with students who use communication aids and devices: how to be an effective communication partner

Victorian State Government, Department of Education and Training Logo

This one day, face to face workshop focuses on the skills required by the communication partner to enable a student who uses a communication aid /device to be an autonomous communicator. Autonomous communication originates in the thought of the communicator and is initiated and generated by them. This requires access to a robust language AAC system that the student can initiate to say what I want to say, to whoever I want to say it, whenever I want to say it, however I choose to say it.

This workshop explores the interactions that support autonomous communication and the key accommodations and supports the student requires to use their current communication systems.
