Training needs in augmentative and alternative communication: A virtual roundtable discussion
In 2019, the Assistive Technology Industry Association (ATIA) released the results of an online survey, designed to identify training needs in the field of augmentative and alternative communication (AAC). The results were also later presented and discussed at an ATIA conference session by ATIA CEO David Dikter in February, 2020. The full report is available at https://atia.org/ATIA2019Survey. The 2019 ATIA survey represented a massive outreach effort, supported by many individuals and organizations, to learn about training needs in AAC. The response was outstanding, with over 1,050 participants. The present paper is an edited version of an online roundtable discussion held in February 2021 to discuss a selected number of key survey findings. The discussion also addressed related topics such as strategies for building assessment and intervention capacity in AAC, opportunities for online case study discussions, supports for preservice instruction, development of collaborative AAC teams, inclusion of people who use AAC in all aspects of the assessment and intervention process, and the provision of culturally and linguistically responsive AAC services.
