Important Session Information:

This course will review elements of implementation to help participants achieve authentic communication with their clients. Participants will learn about communication, a complex multimodal process, involving the interaction of three elements: functions of communication, the environment, and communication partners. This will include a discussion about how to move beyond requesting and what to do as the communication partner. Additionally, participants will learn about the importance of creating communication opportunities, and how to do so for their clients. Examples will be used throughout the seminar and participants will have hands on experience using several tools to help clients achieve authentic communication. 

This course will review and explore vocabulary files that are available with Chat Software on Saltillo devices (i.e. NOVA chat and Chat Fusion).  Participants will explore vocabulary options and learn basic programming skills to customize a client’s file. Participants will be provided with “hands-on” time to learn and customize vocabulary files and adjust settings to meet the needs of a client.  Implementation tips and ideas will also be shared.     

5 hours CEU credit provided by Saltillo
