Code: EL 19/014 ASD and VOCAs. What are the factors for success?

We know that children with ASD are often motivated by technology.  It is often felt that a high-tech communication aid might succeed where low-tech communication charts or books might have failed.

How do we know which children are likely to succeed with using a VOCA?

This online presentation will share the ‘Factors for Success’ that we have identified.  It is intended that professionals will then be able to assess an individual student against these factors, to inform whether they make a referral to KM CAT (or other Regional AAC Assessment Hub), and what support needs to be in place before a referral can be made.
