Exploring augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) in the special education classroom
MetadataShow full item record
The primary question that emerged from a thorough review of the augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) literature related to school settings was how teachers can be provided with suggestions and resources for implementing AAC into the classroom in one easy-to-use location. The purpose of this project was to create a website with strategies, resources, tutorials, and video models for teachers who are working with children who have complex communication needs and want to add more augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) into their classrooms. It provides suggestions and resources for literacy, mathematics, science, core words, assessment and additional topics. The goal is to enhance the ability of teachers to create an environment in which students with complex communication needs can initiate and participate in communication activities when they want to, in the way they want, and with the partners they choose.
