Taking a moment this May to listen, chat, engage, communicate, and link about some of the exciting things the PSU AAC Community has had in development.
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.
