Between the craziness of the election, the stress of Superstorm Sandy, some frustration over some blog issues, and the pace of getting ready for the ASHA convention, we were ready for a little levity. It seemed like just the time to rustle up some jokes that could be programmed on an SGD, an AAC app, or a sequential message device. If you need a laugh, too, here’s a list of places to check out for some jokes that may work for the AAC learners you know.

Funny Area Follow-Up- Wow!

August 1, 2012 by - Leave your thoughts

We wrote about how a ‘funny area’ helped a student communicate more frequently.  In the post script at the end, we said that the student only asked for the ‘funny area’ once in awhile.   Now we have a a second post script, the student asked for the ‘funny area’ yesterday. He had a lot of energy and definitely had the giggles.  To show he learned more with a communication high priority approach, Tommy quickly asked for the ‘funny glasses’ and ‘funny hat’ but then also went on to initiate telling of a joke for the first time!   Take a look at these great jokes from AAC users –courtesy of University of Washington.
