Tell Me More: Increasing Sentence Complexity by AAC Learners

Tell Me More: Increasing Sentence Complexity by AAC Learners | Assistive Technology and Speech Therapy for Nonverbal Students | Scoop.it
Expanding the length and complexity of sentences is something that SLPs love to work on well beyond the ‘early communicator’ phase, something we talked about a few weeks back. In today’s post, we’ll consider ways to build more complex utterances for learners who are gaining competence with their AAC systems but who still use language…

This article gives great tips for communicating with a child who is non-verbal. Just because a child may not use his/her voice to speak, doesn't mean they don't have important things to say! Allow your child to communicate with you, using way they love. Great article!

Simon Says: Model One More Word - Speak For Yourself | Speak For Yourself

Simon Says: Model One More Word - Speak For Yourself | Speak For Yourself | Assistive Technology and Speech Therapy for Nonverbal Students | Scoop.it
One of the more common, and important, Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) implementation strategies is Aided Language Input or modeling.  It would be overwhelming to use your child's/client's device to model EVERY word you are saying verbally...for you and the child!  Here's the good news, you can successfully use Aided Language Input without overwhelming anyone! This blog topic was prompted by a discussion in the Speak for Yourself User's Group.  Since I mentioned it, if you have a child or client using AAC (any type/device/app), the User's Group is a great place to ask questions and share ideas, videos, success stories, concerns, and frustrations. The post was about expanding the length of utterances.  I like analogies, and sometimes they're helpful when you're trying to explain something that's complex.  If you can relate a concept to something more simple that already makes sense, sometimes a concept as complex as language development makes sense.  I used an analog

A No-Tech/Low-Tech Integration of UDL–”Fantastic!” | Assistive Technology and Speech Therapy for Nonverbal Students | Scoop.it

 

"As the CCSS has been crafted with principles of Universal Design for Learning (UDL) to support inclusive access for all students with identified learning needs and/or disabilities, English Learners, linguistic minority students, as well as students from fragile families, many educators respond with concern that without technological resources, they feel challenged to design instruction to meet the diverse needs of their students. While technology can provide expanded access, there are many “no-tech and low-tech” options that many teachers utilize that are also UDL-considerate." - Jennifer Finney-Ellison
