Speech-language pathologists (SLP) often report limited training in augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) (ATIA, 2012; Johnson & Prebor, 2019). Since early 2020, an outbreak of COVID-19 required many clinicians to transfer their caseloads from in-person to telehealth services. Limited training in this service modality may result in additional barriers to high-quality AAC services. The purpose of this presentation is to prepare SLPs to deliver effective AAC assessments and evidence-based interventions via telehealth. Barriers and potential solutions for assessment and treatment will be discussed. The presenter will also review contemporary issues related to telehealth service delivery in AAC.
Electronic handouts will be made available prior to the event.
