In this episode Michelle is joined by the esteemed Dr. Carol Page, Director of the SC Assistive Technology Program. In this episode, Dr. Page assuages listener’s fears of Augmentative and Alternative Communication! Did you know that AAC is more than pictures and a lamination machine and is in fact driven by core vocabulary with a splash of “fringe” vocabulary? Or did you know that when an SLP utilizes AAC with a patient, we are teaching them how to say what they want to say, not what we want them to say?!? If you are feeling overwhelmed, don’t! One of Dr. Page’s gifts is her ability to communicate these attributes of AAC with grace and compassion, such that everyone not only understands how to use AAC, but starts to embrace it on a day-to-day basis with their patients.
