AAC Funding Report Writing


Meeting Description:

AAC report writing can seem like a daunting task whether you are writing your first report or have submitted reports in the past.  There are several steps involved starting with device trials and moving towards writing a device submission report.  What are the dos and don’ts of report writing? What is the language of report writing?  How can our treatment plan on the report be used in our therapy plan and/or IEP to help the user acclimate to their device? In this presentation, participants will learn successful report writing tips for AAC device submissions.  The resources, tools and strategies learned during this presentation can help a therapist during each stage of an AAC device funding report and treatment plan.  During the presentation tools and strategies for having the most effective report will be discussed and examples demonstrated.  These resources can be easily implemented into a clinician’s evaluation process when working with any AAC user.
