This tutorial is the first in a two-part series that considers the unique needs of early communicators with visual impairment and additional disabilities (including deaf-blindness) when designing Augmentative-Alternative Communication (AAC) Systems. Factors surrounding vocabulary selection and organization, visual and tactile symbol adaptation, and use of multiple systems will be considered in the context of a collaborative, team-based approach to AAC.
Participants will earn 1.5 Professional Development Points, ACVREP, CTLE, or Continuing Education credits by viewing the video and taking an online quiz. By registering for Professional Development Points, ACVREP, CTLE, or Continuing Education credits, you will be provided with a self-paced tutorial using video clips and other resources related to this topic, as well as an online test to assess your knowledge.
This is a web-based, self-guided professional development activity for TVIs, VRTs, O&Ms, Parents, Teachers of the Deafblind or Severely Impaired, and Rehabilitation Specialists.
