Siobhan Communicates! How We Do It

A session at The 27th Annual International Technology & Persons with Disabilities Conference CSUN 2012

Thursday 1st March, 2012

1:50pm to 2:50pm (PST)

Functional communication is one of the most critical skills to achieve, and yet many students leave the educational system without it. For some students, the home may be the most effective learning and support environment when it comes to communication. This case study shows how we do it.

Following up on my #CSUN11 presentation “The New AAC: Cheap and Disruptive,” this is an in-depth look at what it takes to support an AAC communicator in her home. Siobhan O’Connor, nineteen, the non-vocal daughter of the presenter/author, has been using AAC now for over 15 years. The presentation will demonstrate the AAC systems Siobhan is using, and outline what it takes to support this very secure and innovative communicator in her home while also supporting the school environment.
