It is an exciting time to reflect on everything that has been accomplished With the AAC Leadership Project. It is phenomenal the impact that these doctoral scholars have had to improve outcomes for individuals with complex communication needs.
So much has happened since last May, and it ultimately comes to this: We are honored to acknowledge the incredible achievements of Dr. Nimisha Muttiah.
We are thrilled to celebrate Dr. Jessica Gosnell Caron and her outstanding accomplishments!
In recognition of the hard work and achievement of Penn State doctoral student, Dr. Ji Young Na!
Penn State grad Smita Worah’s work on developmentally appropriate symbols for young children with complex communication needs, ” A comparison of two approaches for representing AAC vocabulary for young children”, was recently published in the International Journal of Speech-Language Pathology.
Both participants and parents of children who use AAC described the post-instruction interactions more positively than the pre-instruction interactions, suggesting that the pre-service SLPs benefited from the instruction.
