Eighth International Symposium: AAC funding, evidence, and empowering teams
Join us Friday and Saturday, 16-17 April, 2010 for two days of information, discussion and networking on AAC funding issues! The focus of the 2010 Symposium is to review funding practices and policies that are creating a paperwork burden and an increase in denials and appeals of Speech Generating Device (SGD) funding requests. This year’s Symposium is about empowering teams to get the results they expect when seeking AAC funding. Speakers will present the basic evidence related to funding for AAC systems and services.
You’ll receive tips from AAC manufacturers’ funding departments as well as others who have successfully received the AAC systems they selected. Specifics about working through the SGD appeal process and building the case for medical necessity will be presented. Case study examples will be reviewed for everyone’s benefit. You’ll leave with identified steps for action to make funding change happen. Come prepare with questions and examples of issues you face.
Don’t miss this important symposium and opportunity to network with families, friends, and colleagues from past symposia. Register now – seating is limited!www.aacinstitute.org/Symposium
