Implementation Workshop

AAC and Literacy: How to Get Started (Coal Center, PA) Private

Description

There is increasing evidence and understanding that all students can learn to read and write. Research has proven that communication, language, and literacy skills develop in concert with one another, and that time spent in instruction in any one of these areas builds awareness and skill in the other. However, when it comes to individuals who use Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) it is often thought that they need to develop a certain level of skill in communication with their AAC system before they can benefit from literacy instruction. This workshop will outline why that statement is false, and review steps to getting started in providing literacy instruction for your AAC user.  


Learning Outcomes: Upon successful completion, participants will be able to: 

·        Describe the literacy and language connection

·        Discuss how core words support powerful communication

·        Describe the role symbols play in literacy

·        List two emergent literacy strategies that support individuals who use AAC



Check-in begins at 12:00 pm
