Seating and Positioning for Individuals Who Use AT by Aileen Costigan
by Samuel Sennott
Back in the series of posts about ASHA 2008 in Boston last November, The Practical Principles of Seating and Positioning in AAC for SLPs conference session by Aileen Costigan and Janice Light was reviewed here on this blog. Recently the project has been added to the rich and expanding list of AAC-RERC Breeze powered webcast presentations. In this webcast, you get a terrific concise review of the topic, followed by a focus on the team process, ending in a series of case study questions. There are great visual supports in this presentation that get the message across in an engaging and memorable way.
The four goals of the presentation are:
- Why is seating and positioning
- What does appropriate
seating and positioning look like?
- What are the roles of Assistive
Technology (AT) Team Members?
- What resources are available, when
should a referral be made, and to
Definitely check this out and share it with the OTs, teachers, SLPs, other therapists, and families you know who would benefit.
Here is the link to the site, with how it looks below:
