This course provided information dispelling common myths that may contribute to obstacles an SLP faces when initiating the process of introducing, trialing, documenting medical necessity and recommending an AAC device. It further introduced the learner to Lingraphica’s support systems and resources to make this process run more simply and efficiently.
