CDAP 130

The goal of this course is to provide students with an introduction to augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) systems. The role of the Communicative Disorders Assistant in implementing program recommendations will be emphasized throughout. The students will be taught practical skills required to provide support to AAC users, both in pediatric and adult populations. Students will be exposed to a range of AAC systems, intervention activities and strategies reflective of various treatment approaches. The focus of this introductory course will be on AAC systems that involve no or low technology.
