Designed exclusively for parents, guardians, and family members of communicators using AAC, our AAC Group coaching is an informal, interactive, and fun way to improve your communication partner skills by learning along with others. Your AAC Group Coach will lead your small group, generally consisting of 6 participants, through a total of four, one-hour, online meetings. Each meeting highlights a different communication partner strategy. During each meeting, you have the opportunity to ask questions, get inspired, and encourage others.
Who are the AAC Group Coaches? PRC-Saltillo AAC Group Coaches are speech-language pathologists with expertise in AAC and certified by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA). Your PRC-Saltillo AAC Group Coach will offer guidance and support throughout the meetings to help you help your child become a more successful communicator.
What can I expect from the sessions? These meetings are very interactive and provide lots of opportunities for discussion. You will receive numerous resources to help you practice the skills at home. Feel free to share your communication celebrations with the group. Experiencing a particular challenge? Maybe someone else has faced that same issue and has some new ideas. AAC Group Coaching is about helping you develop your skills as a communication partner.
How much does it cost? AAC Group Coaching sessions include four, one-hour meetings and the cost is $200. Registration must be paid by credit card. Please note that coaching is not a direct therapy service and, as such, is not funded by insurance/Medicaid. Fees may be eligible for reimbursement to you by your state Medicaid Waiver program. For information, please consult your Medicaid Waiver Caseworker.
Are you a service provider, educator, therapist, or paraprofessional working with a communicator using AAC? Currently these sessions are for parents/family members/guardians only. Please contact your local PRC-Saltillo consultant for training opportunities. You can locate your consultant by following this link: prc-saltillo.com/consultants
