About the Event

Data collection is often a looming task in the provision of services to individuals who use assistive technology and for service providers to track the effectiveness of their projects. What do you measure? Why do you collect data? How do you frame the data collection process and question so that what is being collected is essential and makes sense?

During this 5-part webinar series, glean 40 years of experience in assistive technology from Kelly Fonner to learn effective and efficient strategies to collect data in the provision of services to your AAC clients. We will be using the “How do you know it? How do you show it? (P.Reed, G.Bowser, J.Korsten) book as a resource throughout the series. We will explore how data collection is structured in assistive technology, with AAC examples of measurement tools and strategies, and the importance of why you measure data and outcomes. Understand the important ways in which we can collect information in AAC, which helps make informed decisions on product selection and/or strategies for the implementation of products.

Kelly will share real-life case studies from individuals on her caseload during AAC assessment and implementation. Build your short and long-term data collection strategies and a variety of methods of compiling information and tracking services and AAC tool provision. Examples will be plentiful throughout the series, including collecting data from video, reviewing collected artifacts, surveying, and creating effective matrices for evaluation. Attend with a particular child/student/situation in mind to build a data collection process for and/or data from a collection process that you’ve already done to share with other attendees. Finally, and most importantly, be prepared to get plenty of ideas on how to add data collection in a practical way to your already busy day.
