SAVE YOUR WORK

Love your drawing and want to keep it for later? Whiteboard lets you save your work, giving you the ability to load it again later so your artwork or writing is always at-the-ready!

YOUR DRAWING, YOUR WAY

Clear, Undo, and Erase functions enable you to delete or fine-tune your creations quickly and easily.

  • Clear – Removes the entire drawing
  • Undo – Removes the most recent addition or change
  • Erase – Removes a portion of your drawing

Exclusively Designed for Parents and Family Members of AAC Learners 

You’ll knock your communication partner skills out of the park with invaluable support and guidance from our AAC Group Coaching Program. Developed specifically for parents, guardians, family members, and other caregivers of communicators using AAC, this informal, interactive program now includes four self-paced, eLearning courses combined with four live, online meetings. You’ll be learning along with a small group of other communication partners who are also supporting family members using PRC-Saltillo speech-generating devices and apps.

All-Star Results Start with Elite Coaching

Whether your AAC learner has just received a new speech-generating device or has had one for a while, you can benefit from the group coaching experience. There’s so much to learn and your group coach will become your go-to resource for effective communication strategies and more! Many parents and caregivers just like you have participated in our AAC Group Coaching Program and are continuing to score big results with their AAC learners. Listen to what a few past participants have to say!

Start the Clock on Skills You’ll Benefit from Immediately

Your AAC coach, a certified speech-language pathologist, will lead you and up to five other participants through a series of four, hour-long, online sessions that are designed to provide you with the tools you need to confidently work with your AAC communicator and become their biggest champion. Before each online meeting, you’ll have access to a new, self-paced, eLearning course that introduces you to upcoming topics. You’ll learn techniques and strategies to provide more communication opportunities and encourage increased interactions throughout this four-week coaching program that costs under $200 — that’s just $25 each for eight combined online and eLearning sessions jam-packed with invaluable resources from an SLP with expertise in AAC and vocabulary systems!

Huddle Up with Other Families

These fun, interactive meetings provide lots of opportunities for discussion with others who understand your family’s challenges. From sharing your communication celebrations to expressing a particular challenge you’ve encountered, this group format helps you develop your skills while interacting with others who may have similar experiences and input to share.  

Achieving Goals with AAC

  • Greater ability to express wants, needs, thoughts, feelings, questions, and medical concerns

Back-to-School with Effective Communication Tools

  • Where to get a lite-tech back-up version of the AAC device
  • Techniques for inviting individuals who use AAC to communicate with their speech-generating devices while not telling them what to say
  • How to determine which vocabulary words to focus on
  • And much more!
