Typing to Communicate: Developing Frameworks for Support and Learning to be a Facilitator
Typing to Communicate is one method used in accessing augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) equipment. This two-day workshop provides the opportunity to learn the techniques necessary to be a facilitator within the context of the principles common to all communication support approaches. We will discuss the “why” and “how” of typing to communicate, along with strategies for integration in school and community settings. ICI staff will work with participants to establish a plan for continued support after the zoom training.
Out of an abundance of caution, this event is now on Zoom. Attendees will receive the links to attend closer to the workshop. Included in this workshop there will be an in-person follow up session for local attendees, and a remote follow up session for our of town participants.
Fees: $100 per person. Payment can be done by mailing a check to the ICI or paying by credit card online. Typers can attend the workshop along with their facilitator free of charge; this would be helpful for hands on practice sessions.
Workshop is 10 a.m-1 p.m. (eastern) both days.
