AAC Implementation Strategies Across Environments Webinar
Ideas for implementing AAC across the day and in multiple settings.
Lanterman Regional Center and ATEC host an AAC Implementation Strategies Across Environments Webinar presented by Marjorie Gell, M.A. CCC-SLP, Certified Proloquo2Go Trainer, ATEC Speech and Language Pathologist.
The webinar will describe and discuss strategies for implementing AAC systems across the day and in multiple settings. Implementation can be one of the most challenging parts of AAC and requires collaboration by multiple team members. The webinar will explain the importance of recognizing and creating communication opportunities throughout the day. The webinar will give examples and suggestions of implementation strategies related to multiple settings, including home, school and in the community.
This training is appropriate for professionals and family members who support a person or people using an AAC system to gain information and ideas for implementation of that system in multiple settings.

As part of the Department of Developmental Services' (DDS) commitment to provide information to the general public, individuals with developmental disabilities and their families, and professionals in the field, DDS produces the Fact Book on an annual basis. The Fact Book presents pertinent data over a 10-year period about the individuals served by DDS, including an overview of the service delivery system and trends in California. The Fact Book contains valuable information that is helpful in better understanding California’s developmental services system and the people served.
The Department of Developmental Services (DDS) monitors the actions and efforts of regional centers to ensure they meet statutory, regulatory and contractual obligations, and uphold the values of the Lanterman Act, the legislation guiding the developmental services system in California.

California law and regulation requires that regional centers display on their Web sites information about the dollar value of services they purchase for clients. These data (called "purchase of service" or "POS" data) must be reported separately by clients' ethnic/racial group, langauge and diagnosis.
