October PrAACtice Ideas- A Year of Core Words
More core word prAACtice ideas.
To make core word prAACtice most successful, make sure everyone has access to a core word AAC display and you have some clearly defined communication goals. Then select activities that encourage social interaction, have a shared focus, and are mostly about the process of learning. Build in lots of communication opportunities to use specific target words for both you and the learner.
For October, meaningful communication and language activities can include art projects, costume parties with photo’s, gardening/planting, and music/concerts. October has so many great options for fun socially motivating activities that all you have to do is go have fun and model on.

Your ideas are sooooo good! I wish I were still in the field instead of pushing 80 years of life. I am passing your site to the gals who are revising our text for teachers of students with physical and multiple disabilities. I hope they give some examples from your site and direct speech/language specialists, teachers and parents to it!!!!!!
This is one great resource!!!!!!
Keep up the good work.
June, thank YOU for stopping by and for all you’ve contributed to the field. Your ideas and positive energy have helped so many of us. So glad to hear that the book is being revised!
