Presented by: Tabitha Jones-Wohleber*** A MASTER PAL, or “skilled partner” of an individual who uses AAC engages in authentic and meaningful interactions. In this third and last webinar, participants will further their understanding of the unique and interrelated as well as differing characteristics of communication and language. Essential characteristics of language development and naturalistic interaction will be examined, as well as the benefits of wait time, and appropriate and responsive prompting. Application of strategies that support receptive and expressive understanding as well as foster rich and connected engagement will be explored. Model as a MASTER PAL is a framework and compilation of resources that focus on supporting communication partners of those who use AAC by highlighting behaviors and belief systems that shape quality communicative exchanges and emphasize the importance of being an engaged and respectful communication partner. A link to all Model as a MASTER PAL resources will be provided.
