Routines-Based AAC Implementation for Young Children

Drag to resize
Join this practical session to explore the use of a routines-based intervention (RBI) approach to support AAC implementation for children under 6 years of age. Amy will emphasize the thoughtful acquisition of information about a child’s current participation and communication in daily routines through the use of routines-focused interviews and observations. From there, she'll walk through cases and examples to show you how to coach caregivers across settings as they work to embed AAC within a variety of daily routines.
