TRAINING COURSE: The Alternative Augmentative Communication (AAC) approach in school contexts

▶ Application deadline 27.02.2023

▶ Start: 04 March 2023 / End: 06 May 2023

The TRAINING COURSE, proposed and managed by the Università Cattolica in collaboration with CeDisMa and Centro Benedetta D’Intino, is dedicated to nursery school teachers, primary and secondary school teachers, support teachers, educators working in schools.

At present, knowledge of Alternative Augmentative Communication (AAC) appears to be more widespread in the different fields of education and rehabilitation than some time ago. This consideration, however, must be accompanied by an awareness of an emerging need – growing among various education and rehabilitation professionals – for an in-depth study of the themes, methodology and strategies of AAC.

This need for in-depth study seeks the way to realistically overcome the initial phase of enthusiasm for the actual novelty offered by CAA and gradually enter the phase of its concrete and fruitful articulation within the educational and life project of each person with complex communication needs.
