Webinar Overview

Teaching core vocabulary and using partner augmented input/aided language stimulation are practices now more widely implemented than ever before. The widespread implementation of these two techniques is promising.

What other actions by those who support individuals learning language with AAC are necessary to foster skills to create generative language whenever, where ever, to whom ever?

Learning Outcomes

This webinar will explore 7 additional factors for AAC Implementation:

  1. least-to-most prompting
  2. morphological instruction (shifting the focus from just words to a more inclusive approach of 'Corephemes' - Core vocabulary + morphemes)
  3. explicit instruction of phrasal verbs (two or more core words put together which result in an altered meaning)
  4. consistent symbol/word location
  5. learning experiences centered around authentic problems
  6. the Specific Language System First approach to tool selection, and
  7. developing a culture with embedded peer support

Who is This Workshop For?

Teachers, therapists, and caregivers can all learn how to extend and expand their AAC implementation strategies using these factors! This webinar is for you!
