Training Institute

The Institute is a training program for teachers, speech pathologists, classroom assistants, and others who work with children using AAC/AT in a home or school environment. The training program focuses on:

  • augmentative communication
  • assistive technology
  • instructional strategies

The Training Institute is more effective if participants attend with a person who uses AAC. If this is not possible, we always have campers who need a trainer. An overnight camp experience lets Institute attendees see the children outside an academic environment and beyond the usual school hours. There is time to work, learn, teach and play in an environment designed to maximize communication.

Camp provides for intensive instruction, hands-on experience with technology and instruction from experts in the fields of AAC/AT and Special Education.

The week-long Training Institute is unique in that it provides:

  • intensive instruction
  • hands-on experience
  • instruction on technology applications
  • small group interaction
  • applied training activities
  • professional networking
  • access to experts in the fields of AAC, AT and Special Education
