Learning language is less like one person opening a locked door and more like a team of construction workers building a house. Rarely is it the case that a dynamic augmentative communication device is put in place and then suddenly scores of language comes spilling out of a student. Instead, it takes a consistent, collaborative effort to implement a functional language system. Working to provide students with a way to communicate is often a difficult task wrought with barriers and challenges.
Together we’ll explore five or more essential components for teaching students how to become effective communicators using AAC.
Learn how to implement strategies that focus on key elements of augmentative and alternative communication.
Questions pertaining to the implementation of core vocabulary (the most frequently used words) will be answered.
Strategies for how to integrate aided language stimulation (modeling using a student’s communication system) will be discussed. Learn how motor planning/motor memory is a necessary component to building automaticity and expanding language.
Leave with practical (and fun) ideas for how to successfully implement an expressive language system based on core vocabulary.
Stop dooming your students to a life of goldfish crackers and start using a system that works to usher students into a world where they become functional communicators.
