Augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) can be life-changing for many individuals, but due to its complex and commercial nature, it also comes with a myriad of potential ethical concerns. Clinicians can improve AAC assessment and intervention outcomes for those they serve by being confident they are making ethically informed decisions about AAC use. This webinar will use case studies to discuss common ethical dilemmas encountered in the use of AAC, leaning on the ASHA Code of Ethics for support. The presenter will outline a process for ethical decision-making and share trends in school and health care settings that affect ethical decision-making as it relates to AAC use.
You will be able to:
- identify trends in health care and education settings that may affect ethical decision-making in AAC
- list the steps in a process for ethical decision-making
- use the ASHA Code of Ethics to identify potential ethical concerns in AAC use
