Title: Practical Strategies for Supporting AAC in the Schools 

 

 

Description

This workshop will provide practical strategies and resources to support effective AAC implementation in the school setting. Participants will learn through a mix of direct instruction and hands-on activities and will leave with a “toolbox” of strategies and resources that can be used to support day-to-day language instruction. Topics will include integration of vocabulary and language supports within regular and special education settings, generation of IEP goals and objectives based on developmental language norms, strategies for supporting reading and writing skills, as well as ways to help families support their children’s language use at home. Lessons shared and practiced will include low-cost re-usable activities that are appropriate for a variety of age ranges in both individual and group lesson formats.
