Teaching students how to use language using an augmentative/alternative communication device can be a difficult task. It takes a consistent, collaborative effort to successfully implement a functional language system. In this webinar explores strategies for teaching even the youngest students language by engineering environments so all communicators have opportunities for rich, meaningful practice of language in the context of everyday routines. Participants will take an in-depth look at coaching communication partners and how coaching empowers parents and educators to take ownership of promoting the use of AAC systems in every lesson and activity all day long in all environments.
- Participants will be able to create a plan of action for how to plan lessons and embed opportunities to teach language across every environment.
- Participants will be able to discuss the importance of practiced coaching skills to use with communication partners.
- Participants will be able to develop an implementation plan that focuses on sustained training of communication partners.
