  • Modelling: Learn how vital it is to model the use of the system and practice how to do this in a variety of contexts
  • Planning communication opportunities

 
Lots of practical tools, resources, tips and tricks will be shared.
While the focus is low tech, the strategies covered can also be used with high tech speech generating devices.
