Presenter(s): Dr. Caroline Musselwhite, PhD, CCC-SLP
Date: Mon 9/23 5:00PM PT / 8:00PM ET
Description:Parents, teachers, and therapists would agree that music is a highly motivating medium for student learning. We also know that visual strategies support our struggling learners. Put this together, and we have ‘songboards’ to scaffold learning across the curriculum. This workshop offers new strategies for using songs with visual supports to scaffold literacy. This webinar will highlight independence, interaction, and important goals. The focus will be on supporting emergent and early conventional literacy learning for all students, with special strategies for students who use AAC. Targets include: concepts about print; phonological awareness at the word, syllable, and phoneme level; alphabet exploration and learning; story retelling; and syntax support.
Presenter(s): Rachel Madel MS, CCC-SLP & Chris Bugaj, MA, CCC-SLP

Description: Many skills needed by communication partners, like partner-augmented input (PAI), can be introduced in workshops, webinars, or in-services but really must be learned in the natural environment with the help of a coach.
Presenter(s): Lauren S. Enders MA, CCC-SLP
Date: Friday 9/27 5:00PM PT / 8:00PM ET
Description: In this session, we will explore ideas for creating an environment that fosters modeling of AAC. We will discuss ideas for creating and using core and fringe vocabulary supports across multiple environments (e.g. at home, in the classroom, on the playground, at the pool, on the beach, and out in the community). We will also talk about ideas for fostering buy-in of families and school teams to increase both their motivation to model and the quality of their modeling. Finally, we will review the importance of providing and modeling quick and meaningful language for social communication.
