Educators need to remain current regarding assistive technology trends and types of AAC that are being used in classrooms. It can be helpful to have a database that is easy to update as new technology emerges. Such a database can be shared with colleagues and families.
Using information from the topic materials and your own independent research, locate current and emerging assistive technology devices for speech and language disorders. Create a database of current information about technology devices that you can readily reference in your future professional practice.
Your resources should be published within the last five years and include at least three entries each for the following resource categories:
- Journals and publications
- Professional organizations
- Conferences, seminars and workshops
- Training opportunities
- Continuing education courses
Your database should include 25-50 word descriptions per resource, with appropriate citations.
