Teams spend a great deal of time and effort thoughtfully considering the most appropriate communication device for a particular student. However, the roadblock often comes once it is time to actually implement the device throughout the student's day. An AAC user needs opportunities to use their device, something to talk about, and most importantly someone to talk to! Furthermore, the user has to be taught how to use the device. In this webinar, we will discuss natural times throughout the day to incorporate AAC devices to cover a variety of communicative tasks and how devices can be used to teach and develop language skills. You will learn about activities and resources for additional practice, ways to appropriately model, strategies for selecting appropriate vocabulary to target, and you will learn from several school teams that are implementing effective practices.
