Great describing thatWhen we first started PrAACtical AAC,  Carole wrote a post titled “5 Nice Things To Say To A Student Who Uses AAC”.  We thought it was time to update these by adding visual support (and a few extra nice things to say).

Why did we want to add visual support?  Because then we are able to  implement a favorite language facilitation strategyAided Language Input (ALI).  We try  to implement aided language input (ALI) when providing positive specific feedback so the message can be ‘seen and heard’.  We can definitely say nice things without visual support (and we do), but when we can, we do.  Everyone needs to hear nice things, A LOT.  Just ask yourself, do you get all the positive feedback you want?
