U.S. Rehab Launches New AAC Online Courses

Published in Complex Rehab on March 07, 2022

AAC Education ReleasedYou’ve asked, we’ve listened! U.S. Rehab has launched new Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) online education. We receive frequent feedback from our members asking for additional education on AAC and we are excited to be able to provide an updated option.  

AAC education is important for those training to become an ATP, as this is a portion of the ATP Exam through RESNA. ATPs and people who are preparing for the ATP exam can purchase and take these courses as a way to learn about AAC or brush up on their skills online.  

The three AAC courses were written by M. Claire Campbell, M.A., CCC-SLP, ATP. Campbell is a Speech-Language Pathologist II and LAMP Certified Provider for AAC based out of the Vanderbilt Bill Wilkerson Pediatric Speech Clinic. The courses include background and assessment of need, access considerations, and intervention and progress monitoring. Each course offers 0.1 continuing education units (CEUs) through IACET. 

The courses can be purchased individually or in the three-course bundle. Discounts are available for U.S. Rehab and VGM members. For more information or to purchase the education, visit learn.usrehab.com/aac-education. Contact U.S. Rehab at 800-987-7342 prior to purchase for the discount code.
