A Survey of SLPs’ Decisions When Designing Aided AAC Displays — Presentation

Thistle, J., & Wilkinson, K. (November 14, 2013).  A Survey of SLPs’ Decisions When Designing Aided AAC Displays.  Technical Research presented at ASHA, in Chicago, IL.

Abstract:

We present the results of an online survey of SLPs regarding the decisions they make when creating aided AAC displays for school-age children.  Participants report clinical decision-making consistent with existing evidence as well as practices that highlight opportunities for new research.

Learner Outcomes:

Learner Outcome 1: Describe major elements of the study design

Learner Outcome 2: Discuss the authors’ conclusions

Learner Outcome 3: Identify possible implications for practice

Jennifer has also presented on her work researching AAC design at the EyeTrackBehavior 2013 – Tobii Eye Tracking Conference on Behavioral Research; at the PSU Interdisciplinary Research Forum & Reception, Graduate Exhibition; and at ASHA 2012.

As part of her experience at PSU, she participates in the AAC Leadership Project.  This federally funded training grant in AAC (U.S. Department of Education grant #H325D110008) is designed to prepare and support faculty researchers specifically interested in the unique needs of persons with complex communication needs.   Jen’s experience includes a specific focus on AAC across coursework, teaching experiences in the classroom and clinical practicum, research opportunities, and promotion of leadership skills.
