Presenter: Nadia Browning
Description: Individuals who benefit from Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) strategies and resources require an interprofessional team approach to assessment and intervention. The occupational therapist has a major role to provide clients with efficient and independent access to face-to-face and written communication to enable engagement in academic, work, leisure and everyday life occupation. This presentation will begin with a brief overview of AAC, the needs of clients who can benefit from AAC, and the role of the interprofessional team members. The responsibility of the occupational therapist in AAC will be detailed and reference will be made to existing models related to AAC and the Canadian Practice Process Framework (CPPF), (Townsend & Polatajko, 2012). A case study will be used to illustrate the content and to provide suggestions on AAC strategies that can be integrated into practice.

This purchase is for the January 20, 2015 Lunch & Learn webinar presentation web link archive. The archive purchase will be in the format of a web-based link that will be emailed to you separately in the following business days.
