    As always, we ask participants to refrain from using actual student names or disclosing any other personally identifiable information protected under FERPA.

    These sessions are open to all Oregon public school and early childhood educators and staff. You are welcome to attend any or all of the sessions. Separate registration is required for each session.

    SERIES DESCRIPTION

    This eight-part virtual series is offered at no charge, and was developed specifically for school-based and early childhood professionals who want to learn how to successfully implement augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) for the children and youth they serve with a variety of communication needs. 

    We recognize that many speech-language pathologists, special education teachers, occupational therapists and others receive limited or no pre-service training in AAC in their university preparation programs. We also acknowledge that AAC can be intimidating to those with less experience in this specialized area of practice. This series is designed to be approachable and help participants establish a foundation of knowledge in AAC sufficient to move forward with implementation. We hope it serves as an "on ramp" for those seeking the knowledge and skills to successfully implement AAC interventions.

    The information will apply to children and youth of all ages, from early childhood to high school, including students who are at the earliest developmental levels of communication.

    AT & AAC TRAINING TOPICS AVAILABLE PER DISTRICT REQUEST

    Did you know that districts in our region may request custom trainings specifically for their staff?

    The following list represents topics that we can focus upon, combine, or customize based upon staff interests and needs. To request a workshop, contact Darthea Park at dpark@pps.net or contact any member of the OI team.

    Assessment of Children with Complex Communication Needs: Assessing children with Complex Communication Needs for eligibility and program planning purposes can be challenging.  In this training, we will review state eligibility requirements and share assessment tools and strategies that school districts have found helpful in this process.

    Communication Partner Training: Successful communication is dependent not only on the augmentative communication tools available but also on communication strategies. This training will teach partner skills, in addition to student skills, that are critical to allow students to develop effective communication.

    Partner Assisted Scanning: Partner assisted scanning is a way for communication "partners" to "assist" students by listing or "scanning" through possible choices.  It is an especially valuable strategy for those who have severe motor challenges and limited functional vision.

    AAC Implementation Ideas and How to Get Started: May be customized to emphasize different age groups (EI/ECSE, School-Aged).  This training will focus on providing educators and therapists working in early intervention or in school-aged settings with evidence-based techniques for teaching and implementing AAC. Topics will include incorporating the use of core vocabulary for motivating activities and also for communication for academic tasks (Science experiments, etc.).

    No tech and light tech AAC Ideas: Have you wondered why, in this fast-paced world of technology, no tech or light technology tools should be considered? Confused about all the names for these tools (PODD, PAS, PECS, PCS, Pixon). This training offers an overview of how to create and use individualized no tech or light tech tools to enhance your students’ communication, and it reinforces how vital these tools are.

    Student Environment Tasks Tools (SETT): Framework for Identifying and Implementing Assistive Technology Interventions: The SETT Framework is a tool that helps teams gather and organize information that can be used to guide collaborative decisions about services that foster the educational success of students with disabilities. Participants will learn why considering the Student, Environment and Tasks are just as important as considering the features of the Tools. Individuals will learn a team-based, approach to implement AT and AAC tools and strategies.

    Aided Language Stimulation and Core Vocabulary: AAC is not just about tools, it's about using effective strategies and techniques to teach communicative competence.  Very few students begin communicating immediately when a tool is presented to them, they need to be taught how to use the tool. This training focuses on one of the most important strategies for teaching students to communicate using AAC tools, Aided Language Stimulation. The Importance of modeling core vocabulary within authentic and motivating strategies will also be discussed.

    Programming and Use of Specific AAC Apps (Proloquo2go, LAMP, GoTalk Now, TouchChat, etc.): With all of the AAC apps that are available now, it can be challenging to keep up with how to go about programming the app so that it can be individualized for a particular student. This training is ideal for Speech & Language Pathologists that may not be familiar with a specific app and would like to learn more about how to program the device for their student.

    Mastering the Art of Switch Assessment and Switch Access: Switches help people with disabilities access a range of equipment and technology. The aim of a switch assessment is to determine which switch, movement and switch position is the most appropriate for the student. This involves a process of trial and error, trying a range of switches, movements and positions to determine which combination provides the most successful method of access to an activity for the user.

    iPads:  Switch it up!: This provides a hands-on class with iPads provided by CRIS that covers an array of apps that are specifically designed with built in switch access as well as switch access within iOS.
