Upcoming Workshop in Fayetteville, NC

Hey Tek-ninjas! I've got another North Carolina learning opportunity for you! The folks at Therapy Innovations are hosting Lisa Geary and myself for a workshop titled "Communicating Beyond Requesting", Thursday, April 30, 2020. 

Where do you typically start when introducing augmentative and alternative communication (AAC)? If you are like most people, you probably start with activities that involve an individual requesting a motivating object or action. But what happens next? What happens when we run out of things to request? This session, will explore key areas to go beyond requesting including vocabulary selection, goal writing, intervention strategies and communication partner tips.

This course will be offered for 0.5 ASHA CEUs (Introductory level, Professional Area).

Date & Time: Thursday, April 30, 2020 09:00 AM - 03:30 PM ET

Location: Therapy Innovations 4140 Ramsey Street Suite 111, Fayetteville, North Carolina 28311, United States
