Pivotal Skills for AAC Intervention: Aided Language Input
We can’t seem to stop talking about the power of aided language input. It’s one of those strategies that make our sessions more effective and make our clinicians more comfortable with the learner’s AAC system. And when other team members see us using it, they can’t help but pick up on the importance of aided modeling for people who are still learning to use their communication boards, books, SGDs, and mobile devices.

    Great to see you put modelling top of the list here! Apart from the direct teaching aspect, modelling also serves to validate the use of an AAC system (to the person learning)and in addition provides support people with direct insight into what it is like to be an AAC user.

      Thanks for your comment, David. Yes, it is one of those strategies that, when used appropriately, is incredibly powerful. It takes awhile to get the hang of it, but it is worth the effort.
