Augmentative and alternative communication, augmented input & Autism Spectrum Disorder
MetadataShow full item record
Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder often struggle with communication and may benefit from the use of augmentative and alternative communication. Special education teachers can play a significant role in teaching and supporting communication for students with complex communication needs through the use of augmented input such as aided language stimulation. Lack of specialized knowledge is a particular barrier to the effective teaching and implementation of augmentative and alternative communication in the classroom. Teachers have also identified time and peer relationships as a significant challenge to the implementation of augmentative and alternative communication. The applied project is a workshop which aims to bolster classroom management skills, self-efficacy, perceptions, attitudes and knowledge of special education teachers to support their students with Autism Spectrum Disorder’s communication using augmentative and alternative communication in site-based classrooms. The workshop is an hour and a half long PowerPoint presentation.
