Is augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) the last resort in treatment methodology when working with children with CAS? This session will explore the current relationship between augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) and treatment strategies utilized in intervention with children with CAS. Participants will learn what research says regarding this integration and results of an informal survey will be shared. Case studies will be presented that involve a variety of AAC platforms in order to demonstrate the integration of AAC and other intervention methods focused on verbal speech. Participants will be provided with resources to further their knowledge of this area and give them support for inclusion of AAC when appropriate.
