Course Info

This half-day workshop will focus on serving clients who need augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) support delivered via telehealth. This session will be available as a half-day, virtual continuing education event on March 6, 2021 and led by Brandon Eddy, M.A., CCC-SLP, an Assistant Clinical Professor in the Department of Speech & Hearing Sciences at Portland State University. He is also an SLP at Shriners Hospitals for Children, and a Research Associate with the REKNEW Lab at OHSU. 

Session Description 

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.
