Holly and Vicki are at it again with the new and improved Dynamic AAC Goals Grid, hot off the presses at Dynavox! We will be presenting a FREE webinar through Dynavox on May 21st from 12-1 to introduce (and SHARE!) the newest tool for assessing communicative competence and writing goals for AAC users. CEUs are available for ASHA certified speech language pathologists.
Description: In the era of Evidence Based Practice, are you struggling to come up with applicable, research-based IEP objectives for your AAC students? Need to show measurable progress to insurance and Medicaid to validate your work? Learn how to use a Dynamic AAC Goals Grid to choose appropriate, measurable AAC goals to meet patient needs and document their gains. The revised Dynamic AAC Goals Grid (DAGG-2) includes five communication ability levels with over 100 goals addressing Linguistic, Operational, Social and Strategic competency as well as additional components for writing long and short-term goals. Using real-life case studies, this session will highlight using the DAGG-2 for initial assessment, goal writing and measuring progress. This course is offered for .1 ASHA CEUs (Intermediate level, Professional area). This course will be recorded and available for CEUs within 48 hours of the live session.
