AAC From A to Z: A is for Aided Language Stimulation

If you read this blog regularly, you know that I talk a lot about AAC implementation and best practices for getting your aac users to communicate.




This week, I'm posting a link to a quick video in which I explain aided language stimulation - yes, again!  It is so important that it bears repeating and repeating.  It is sometimes difficult for staff or parents to wrap their heads around doing this crucial step of modeling the AAC system use.


So, enjoy the video and find a single activity in which to practice this skill.  It's easy once you get the hang of it, and it will make a world of difference to your aac user.

Keep on Talking!

  3. Thanks, Susan. I learned from your video on augmentative communication systems. As a classroom teacher, I don't have the knowledge to understand all that goes into being an SLP. Thanks for the insight.

    1. You're welcome. And no, we don't teach either our speech paths or special ed teachers enough about how to teach these kids. Thanks so much for reading.
