WisTech Virtual Training #4 Ethical Considerations with Augmentative and Alternative Communication Devices
The category of augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) technology is very broad and is used by a wide variety of individuals with disabilities. With the range of high end, complex AAC devices to speech generating apps on our smartphones and tablets these tools are used in many situations. We communicate in school, in the community, at home, and at work. Some individuals are independent with using their devices and others rely upon a service provider, a speech therapist, a caregiver, or a family member to support their communication. All of these factors can lead to ethical considerations in programming, use, and personal choices. This session will spotlight the ethical considerations faced by users and supporters of AAC through the lens of the CRC Code of Ethics.
