Adler’s Voice Announces Free Online Courses

December 16, 2018

Developing AAC-related training programs has been a core objective of Adler’s Voice in recent years. Apart from offering local training sessions, we have partnered with experienced speech-language pathologists to create a series of online courses that have been available for free to our grant recipients and for a fee to educators and professionals in the field of AAC. But now we are taking our efforts one step further.

Over the past two months, we have been busy revising our existing course videos, streamlining the course design, enhancing the related download materials, and migrating our entire course catalog from the former cloud-based hosting platform to our website. By establishing a tighter integration between our online courses and the other services we offer, we are seeking to ensure that our training programs will be even more accessible and reach an even wider audience in the future. But most importantly, we decided to make our courses available for free to all members of our community!

Families and professionals will no longer have to register for attending our online trainings, but can start exploring our course catalog directly from our website. Whether you are a parent, a care provider, or a professional, or whether you are just interested in the field of Augmentative and Alternative Communication, we are confident that you will find our courses to be a valuable source of accessible, research-based and practice-oriented information.

Stories

Kelsey was born with a mito­chon­drial dis­order and was di­ag­nos­ed with Apra­xia of Speech. We pro­vided her with an AAC de­vice, and it is amaz­ing to see how her lan­guage skills have blossom­ed since then. She con­tinues to ex­pand her ex­pres­sive vo­cabu­lary, gain­ing new words and fluency each year.

Adler’s Voice pro­vides rele­vant train­ings to all in­di­vid­uals that use or sup­port a per­son who uses Aug­men­tati­ve and Al­ter­na­tive Com­mu­ni­ca­tion. Our on­line cours­es are avail­able for free to fa­mi­lies, care­giv­ers and pro­fes­sion­als work­ing in the field of AAC.
