Video of the Week: Embedding Core Vocabulary Instruction into Emergent Literacy Routines

It’s difficult to find enough instructional time during the school day to address all of the goals and priorities that we have for AAC learners. In today’s featured video, Dr. Lori Geist shares ideas for how we can integrate the teaching and practice of core vocabulary with emergent literacy activities and routines. You can obtain the handouts for this session here. Many thanks to Dr. Geist and to the amazing team at CoughDrop for creating and sharing this wonderful presentation that was part of the AAC in the Cloud 2020 Conference.
