What You'll Learn in This 1 Hour Free Training

Autonomous Communication

Autonomous communication should be our goal for our AAC learners, but it’s the first place most therapists miss the mark. Learn what autonomous communication is, and how this knowledge can empower you to work with your clients in totally new ways.

Authentic Connection & Interaction

Building authentic relationships and interactions with our clients completely transforms our therapeutic relationships. But is that what you’re currently doing? We’ll help you parse it out and make a plan for true, authentic connection that leaves everyone feeling seen, heard, valued, and connected.

Robust AAC Systems

 Any old communication system may not really be good enough to support autonomous communication. Learn how to evaluate communication options so that you can identify a robust AAC system for your clients with confidence every time.

Encouraging Communication

For most therapists, our prompting style stands in the way of true autonomous communication. Learn what to do about it so you can feel certain that you have the skills to effectively support your clients in the most meaningful way.
