Bethany Bertoti, MS, CCC-SLP, is a pediatric speech-language pathologist at Providence Children's Development Institute. Bethany is certified by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association and has an extensive background in augmentative and alternative communication.
This two-hour course is geared for parents, families, caregivers, in-home SLPs, and OTs to learn some basic techniques in integrating your child’s communication system (from low tech to high tech SGDs) into your daily life WITHOUT creating added stress.
- Recognize communication vs “testing”
- Use low tech- high tech SGDs in a variety of settings in the home and community
- Identify at least three daily activities that you ALREADY do where a communication system can be integrated.
This will NOT be a training on specific devices or systems, rather ways to integrate any system a child may have into the home and community.
