Diving into Literacy with Core Vocabulary

Non-oral communicators rely on Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) that may include a continuum of high to low tech communication tools and core vocabulary. These systems are most effective when used in all environments at every available opportunity. Transitioning AAC skills from functional communication in the educational environment to formal academic instruction can be challenging. This intermediate session assumes a solid knowledge base of core vocabulary use and implementation. Participants will take it to the next level by exploring how to use core vocabulary to promote literacy development and academic growth related to reading, writing, math, and science.
