Emergent learners who use augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) – no matter their age – can benefit from literacy instruction. This webinar will review important elements of literacy and language instruction, especially for those who are early in their AAC use and language development. The presenter will discuss the elements of a strong literacy curriculum – including a voice for all, learner engagement, an enthused knowledgeable reader, the alphabet, actual text, and shared environments and experiences – and how SLPs can incorporate them when working with AAC users on language and literacy goals.
You will be able to:
- list parts of a strong literacy framework for those who are learning language with AAC tools and systems
- formulate ideas for implementing sound literacy, language, and AAC practices in the classroom
- integrate authentic literature into lessons geared to enhance communication via AAC
