Liberator offers Clinical Supervision alongside alongside our regular trainings and assessment clinic. Academic qualifications are one thing, but it is the daily exposure to the practical demands of implementing AAC that has allowed Liberator speech pathologists to gain deep knowledge & develop assured clinical skills. Integral to The Mission is a strong desire to ensure that each AAC device-user receives adequate & appropriate levels of tuition & instruction within a sensitive, therapeutic framework.
There are several structural challenges facing the profession of speech pathologists as it grapples with the demands of successful AAC provision. One is the lack of academic focus, within undergraduate study topics, on this narrow, specialised area. Another is the dynamic nature of staff movement between jobs & organisations, along with the proportion of part-time therapists. Finally, the AAC industry itself is constantly in flux as new technologies are adopted & adapted. Liberator’s Clinicians are qualified to address these issues by way of offering supervision, guidance & mentoring to both organisations involved in AAC & individual speech pathologists in the field.
