Also, the more information families have, the better advocates they will become. And since families are one of the only constants in an AAC learner’s educational and life journey, the family is really the most important part the communication team.

  • Supporting and training parents is so important! And they often get left out of the loop. It makes me crazy when schools complain that parents don’t follow through, but they’ve put no effort into training them. Thanks for the good info. I will be sure to share with parents!

      Such good points, Susan. I am always surprised when teams fail to put AAC training into the IEP. We ALL need it and would benefit from learning more than the operational aspects of the technology. How to implement, what to do to build language, etc. Thanks for stopping by to comment.
