Throwback Thursday: Looking at AAC Language Learning Activities
What are the language learning priorities for the AAC users in your life?
- Expanding vocabulary?
- Increasing sentence length and complexity?
- Using a greater range of communicative functions?
- Applying morphological markers?
Given the heterogeneity of our AAC learners, it’s no surprise that the language goals we address are just as diverse. Today, we dig through the archives to highlight activities that can be used to target an array of language learning objectives. Browse through the list to see if you can find some that are of use in your AAC work.
