How do you get started teaching someone to use augmentative and alternative communication (AAC)?
When you are first starting out with AAC, there are some tips that will help your child use AAC more effectively. Start by modeling the AAC support for your child. AAC learners need to see someone communicate using an AAC support. Do this by pointing to words as you talk with your child. Do not model every single word, just point to the important words as you say them. Learn more about modeling and other strategies for implementing AAC in this section. You can also download our free app called Pathways to walk you through the successful implementation of AAC.
In this implementation category, we also have training for how to implement AAC for people with aphasia.
