This month’s Autism 200 Series class is Autism 209: Let’s Talk About AAC and Autism Spectrum Disorder.

Our instructors are Megan Pattee, MS, CCC-SLP and Jo Ristow, MS, CCC-SLP

Many children with ASD face challenges communicating. Luckily, communication is more than the words we speak. The goal of alternative and augmentative communication (AAC) is to provide alternatives to talking out loud or provide tools to verbal communication to help a child find the power of their voice. This presentation will focus on current trends in AAC technology as well as tools, goals and teaching techniques that are available for different types of communicators.

This class will be held Thursday, October 18, 2018 at Seattle Children’s Hospital in Wright Auditorium from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m.
