Setting Up for Success with Switch Scanning

February 2nd, 2023 @ 9:45, Booth #800

Switch scanning is an important access method for consideration with high-tech augmentative and alternative communication. Often viewed as a last resort, switch scanning can feel daunting to understand and teach. By having a solid foundation for the types of scanning available, activation options, and a frame of reference for what a successful switch-scanning communicator might look like, you will feel prepared for successful communication with switch scanning. Demonstrations and case studies will immediately enhance your understanding of switch scanning so that you can put into practice what you learn right away.

Evaluation Support

Our experienced team of Speech Language Pathologists/AAC Consultants are available to support your evaluations. We'll work with the veteran's team to help assess skills and needs related to voice message banking, environmental controls, vocabulary, access methods and mounting. The result is a tailored speech-generating device that supports successful communication across their varied environments.

Personalization

Our mission is to see veterans start communicating using their new speech-generating device as quickly as possible, so we'll do the initial customizing and personalization before shipping it to them! With input from family members and therapists, we'll add a bit of their personality to their device, so the first words spoken have meaning, like "Let's watch the big game!", "Hunny, are you watching QVC AGAIN?", or "I'm a proud Grandfather of ten."

Training and Support

In support of developing confidence and communication success, our expert AAC Consultants/SLPs will provide monthly* consultation to each veteran and their entire support team. From developing skills related to practical use, caregiver support, rate enhancement strategies, access methods, to environment and computer control.

*Monthy consultations are available via a variety of remote methods, including Teleconference, Skype, FaceTime, Web conferencing and remote sharing.
