Mandak, K., Light, J., & McNaughton, D. (2018, November). Effects of an online training on pre-service SLPs’ use of family-centered behaviors. Presentation at the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) Conference, Boston, MA.
Abstract: Although family-centered services are considered best-practice in AAC services, many SLPs are lacking in their implementation of family-centered skills. In this study, 15 pre-service SLPs participated in an online training designed to improve their demonstration of family-centered skills. Post-training, all students made significant gains in their use of a family-centered strategy. Clinical implications and directions for future research are discussed.
