Program Description
As new clinical approaches emerge and technology improves, therapists and educators are increasingly challenged to enhance knowledge of best practices in the treatment and education for clients, patients, and students with augmentative-alternative communication and assistive technology needs. How do therapists, educators, and medical professionals assure they are current with new clinical approaches as research and new technology emerges? Join us for the 2008 Northwest Conference and interact with colleagues and nationally recognized experts in the area of AAC and Assistive Technology. Concurrent sessions are offered, allowing you to tailor the conference to meet your professional needs. Product and service vendors will offer one-on-one, hands-on demonstrations and discussion to enhance your educational experience.
