For special education teachers, integrating Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) into the classroom setting is a key strategy for fostering inclusive and effective communication.
One of the most challenging parts of learning to communicate using AAC is that we need to use it all day, in all activities in order to get better at it.
When a person struggles to communicate effectively using their speech, a decision must be made about how to spend time improving communication.
In the world of supporting special needs students with expressive language and speech impairments, teaching communication for expressing wants and needs is not just important, it's one of our priorities.
Supporting individuals who use Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) involves understanding and respecting their autonomy. Unfortunately, the use of hand-over-hand assistance in communication attempts can have unintended negative consequences for AAC users.
