This implementation class will focus on using AAC in the classroom during speaking, reading, writing, math, science, art, music and cooking activities. Participants will learn about the importance of language development and core vocabulary, teaching methods to promote the use of core vocabulary across environments and strategies to engineer the classroom. In addition, participants will learn how to select target vocabulary for classroom activities based on language development principles. Methods for finding and teaching target vocabulary will be covered; including icon tutor/word finder, vocabulary builder and write with icons. Finally, attendees will learn how to set up and deliver activities to foster communication. Practical examples and materials will be used throughout the class. The strategies presented will cover a range of communicative abilities and can be applied to a variety of language systems and communication devices.
