Communication, AAC and the IEP

This session will discuss common IEP concerns that arise when children rely on AAC to communicate, procedural safeguards (parent rights) within special education to ensure students receive a free and appropriate public education, and strategies to include individualized educational services and supports within the IEP that are necessary for authentic and meaningful communication between students, peers, teachers, and others. Presenters: Dr. Elizabeth Hanson, Ph.D., CCC-SLP, Associate Professor, Dept. of Communication Sciences Disorders, University of South Dakota; Theresa Baldry, parent of an accomplished AAC user, Project Coordinator for Transition and Employment Projects Montana Deaf-Blind Projects, Rural Institute For Inclusive Communities, University of Montana; and Lisa Sanderson, Family to Family Health Information Center Project Director, South Dakota Parent Connection.
