Description: 

Individuals that utilize augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) systems may access these systems through a variety of access methods. The most common access method is a form of direct access, touch. Most of us utilize touch access daily with our personal phones and tablets but we may not be familiar with options available to support those with motor, vision, and sensory differences. This session will provide an in-depth look at touch access and the various settings and supports we can implement to increase accessibility and independence with communication systems.

Objectives: 

Following this session, participants will be able to:

  • Identify 3 touch access options
  • Describe touch access supports to meet needs of patients with motor and sensory differences
  • Describe assessment process to determine if touch access is appropriate
