The Tobii Dynavox Ecosystem

A collection of tools to support literacy and language learning


AGOSCI presents this webinar in partnership with Tobii Dynavox and LinkAT

                 

Webinar Overview

When supporting students with the most significant learning and communication challenges, service providers and parents must be well equipped with materials that will help support growth and meaningful participation for AAC users.  Join us as we explore the Tobii Dynavox Ecosystem – a collection of easily accessible tools to support literacy and language learning.  Practical strategies to help identify appropriate goals, support team collaboration, and ways to teach and practice new skills will be explored.  Participants will leave with a toolkit of (free) supports that can be used at both home and school.

Learning Outcomes

  • Discuss how literacy and language learning are conceptually reinforcing to each other.
  • Describe 2 – 3 benefits to using shared reading to teach language and literacy skills.
  • List 3 easily accessible teaching tools and describe ways to implement into everyday therapy, classroom, and home activities.

Who is this for?

Therapists, teachers and anyone supporting AAC users.
