AllAccess: Exploring the Possibilities of Alternative Access and AAC
There are many individuals who can access augmentative alternative communication (AAC) with the touch of a finger. However, there are also a significant number of people with more complex physical disabilities that require an alternative to touching a screen.
This three-hour class will give participants an overview of access method options in AAC. Using case studies, the following access methods will be reviewed: touch, NuPoint (cursor is controlled by head movement), NuEye (cursor is controlled by eye gaze), and one/two switch scanning. Through demonstration, videos, and audience participation attendees will learn about vocabulary, hardware, and software considerations when setting up an alternative access method for an individual.
You do not need to bring an AAC device to this training as equipment will be provided.
ASHA CEs are available
Professionals, parents, or individuals who use AAC who want to learn more about access method options in AAC.
