Description

The Barnsley Assistive Technology Team are pleased to host this session from Jane Odom, Specialist Teacher.

ABOUT THE PRESENTER

Jane Odom, M. Ed. -- Jane earned her Bachelor of Science and Master of Education degrees from Temple University in Philadelphia and has more than 13 years of teaching experience in the field of Special Education. She was the Language Instructor for the ACES (Augmentative Communication and Empowerment Seminar) program at Temple University for 9 years where she taught AAC device users alongside other professionals about the use and implementation of AAC devices in everyday life.

Jane serves as the Implementation Resource Manager for PRC. She is responsible for focusing nationally on increasing our knowledge of the education segment and creating innovative approaches to implement PRC devices in school settings.

Reality Augmentative and Alternative Communication Implementation: Using Communication Devices in the Classroom:

This presentation focuses on strategies to teach and promote the use of an augmentative communication system to get students to independently initiate spontaneous, novel utterances rather than simply answering yes /no questions. The strategies presented will cover a range of communication ages and abilities, including those at the level of emerging language and literacy. The teaching strategies presented are appropriate for a wide variety of devices and programs. Real life examples will be used to illustrate all strategies.

Jane will present an interactive workshop examining the reality of using AAC devices in many aspects of the school day -- calendar time, literacy activities, group writing, social studies, and more. Activities will be linked to education standards. Participants will receive a free CD of activities they can use in their classroom.
