Best Practices in Communication for Neuromuscular Diseases
Angela Staunch Lane and Kelly Casey from Johns Hopkins University provide an overview of best practices in communication for neuromuscular disease. The webinar includes an overview of communication impairments common in neuromuscular disease, the process of identifying these impairments through a multidisciplinary assessment, and devices/access methods that help with communication.
- Define communication impairments associated with neuromuscular disorders
- Describe the interdisciplinary assessment process for communication (e.g. AAC, AT, etc.) for persons with neuromuscular disorders
- Identify high and low tech devices for persons with neuromuscular disorders who present with communication impairments
- Identify various access methods for AAC devices for persons with neuromuscular disorders
