Partnering with the Autism Society of the Inland Empire (ASIE), the Center for Educational Justice at the University of Redlands School of Education will host the Second Annual Augmentative & Alternative Communication (AAC) Workshop titled “Technology + Collaboration = Communication & Access” from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Dec. 7 at the Casa Loma Room.

The keynote speaker for this event will be Dr. Gloria Soto, professor of education at San Francisco State University. Soto is an expert in augmentative and alternative communication (AAC), multiculturalism, collaborative teaming, inclusive education and professional preparation.

Augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) is a term that is used to describe various methods of communication that can help people who are unable to use verbal speech to communicate, and some devices are showing promise as being a valuable tool for teachers in building on the reading skills of young children, or those with reading disabilities.

This event will provide educators, professionals, family members and students with the most current information on the uses of technology for students with disabilities, including individuals with autism spectrum disorders. The workshop will cover the following topics:

  • Educational apps for elementary school
  • Technology for high school and college
  • Professionals roles on integrating technology in the educational settings
  • Tales of success from the classroom
  • Setting up and using AAC in school and home settings
