Event description

Relevant to: speech pathologists, teachers and other professionals working with students with complex communication needs
Communication is complex and unpredictable. Opportunities to communicate for all people are constantly occurring and we choose the most efficient and effective strategy to communicate in each moment as it occurs. For the student with Complex Communication Needs (CCN), they require a range of different Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) strategies to use at different times. No single strategy will be the most efficient or appropriate for all communication opportunities, therefore a range of communication strategies need to be implemented, taught and always available to the student. This multi-modal approach is known as Whole Communication. As speech pathologists and educators we have to teach and implement these different strategies to a range of students with varying needs. This presents a number of challenges in an already busy school environment. So, how do we balance the needs of all students and work toward autonomous communication for all?
