Archived Webcast: Determining an Effective Communication System for Students with Autism Spectrum Disorder Dawn Hendricks


Learning to communicate and enhancing skills is considered to be a profound and indisputable individual right. Every student with autism spectrum disorder is to have an effective communication system that will allow him/her to interact in a meaningful way across settings and across people. The use of augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) is a way to enhance communication for  a variety of students with ASD.  It can be effective for those with  no or limited verbal abilities, but can also be beneficial for those who are able to speak but cannot communicate their full potential.
