PARENT COACHING

Evidence supports that when parents are educated in strategies to support AAC, such as partner-augmented input (PAI), AAC modeling increases, parents and children become more comfortable with their devices, parents report an increase in AAC use at home, and children use more words on their devices

CONSULTING

Provide you with evidenced-based strategies or an appropriate referral, if needed.
