Limited Capacity seats available

This discussion will outline a practitioner's guidelines for addressing communicative competence for augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) users with complex communication needs. Participants will examine the current literature and discuss ideas for practice guidelines outlining when presumptions of competence can still protect all individuals from exposure to interventions with high levels of risk for abuse, when only the potential for competence should be presumed, and when to demand evidence.
