Penn State faculty and students are excited to be at the PSHA 2017 conference, “Serve, Lead, Inspire”! We’ll see you soon!
Featuring the collaborative work of Tara O’Neill and Kelsey Mandak and cross-disciplinary faculty mentors/co-authors to enhance the abilities of SLPs working with children who have complex communication needs and their families with AAC interventions aligned with Family Systems Theory.
“Research shows that children with communication challenges do best when introduced to augmentative and alternative communication as early as 12 months.”
“The results of the current study provide new and needed evidence of an intervention option for teaching language and communication to children with ASD who require AAC to meet their daily communication needs. “
In recognition of the hard work and achievement of Penn State doctoral student, Dr. Michelle Therrien!
“In the case of forecasting the future of AAC systems and services, the largest risk is not that predictions do not come true, but that the science and the application do not advance.”
