PrAACtical Resources: Teaching Peers About AAC

It is not overstating things to say that Gail Van Tatenhove’s resources have shaped the way AAC is practiced all around the world. In this post, we share a terrific booklet that she created to help those who are supporting students in inclusive settings. While this specific resource is designed to teach the basic idea of Minspeak, the student-friendly approach she has used is a wonderful example that can inspire those of us who support students working with a wider variety of AAC systems. Enjoy this little gem! You can download it here or by clicking on the image below.

Moms and dads know it. Teachers and SLPs know it, too. As children get older, the impact of peer relationships edge out the adults. There’s just nothing like the presence of a peer to get a communicator interested in using their best language abilities. Today, we’re excited to share a set of videos on peer power that are part of a larger module by Jacob Wolf and Earle Knowlton from the University of Kansas. Enjoy!
