What is POWER: AAC?

POWER: AAC is a training series developed by PaTTAN with Gail Van Tatenhove, CCC-SLP. Gail, a speech/language pathologist with over thirty years of experience in the field of augmentative and alternative communication (AAC), has collaborated with AAC practitioners in Pennsylvania intermediate units over the course of several years on this project.  

The POWER: AAC modules are intended to build the capacity of school personnel to improve communication skills and provide a flexible, generative vocabulary for students who need or use AAC. 

Participants will learn to support students with whom they work in their classrooms or caseloads with complex support needs and who would benefit from augmentative alternative communication (AAC) through the use of core vocabulary. They will explore and expand their understanding of the POWER: AAC to support their students.

This course is a pre-requisite to  POWER: AAC – Applying Practices (modules 7-12). Participants must complete POWER: AAC (modules 1-6) – Learning the Basics training prior to completing POWER: AAC – Applying Practices.
