AAC In Medical Settings: Quick Strategies and Beyond
Patricia Dowden, Ph.D., CCC-SLP
This is a full-day workshop designed for Speech Language Pathologists serving adults, teens, and youth with acquired disorders in a variety of medical settings. Case examples will include patients in intensive, acute and extended care who have lost communication abilities due to stroke, degenerative disease, or traumatic brain injury. The course is designed for the non-expert and will cover quick strategies that can be implemented the next day as well as some longer-term approaches, including the engagement of caregivers. Many strategies will involve no technology at all, but the tech approaches will include speech generating devices as well as mobile technologies for communication. We will discuss how to manage the changing role of the SLP with AAC in medical settings.
0.6 ASHA CEUs will be available. Saturday, November 8th, 9:00-4:00 at the University of Washington in Seattle.
