Course Description

This workshop will provide an overview of core vocabulary and how it is represented across two AAC platforms. Core vocabulary is comprised of the words we use for communication regardless of context. About 80% of the words we use will be core, and teaching these words to individuals using AAC is particularly important. In this workshop, participants will develop an understanding of what core vocabulary is and how it can be represented across AAC devices and vocabulary systems. Participants will explore use of core vocabulary in social and academic environments, and get hands-on time to practice with AAC devices. Finally, specific strategies for teaching core vocabulary throughout lessons, activities and classroom routines will be discussed.

This presentation will focus exclusively on Nova Chat 5, Nova Chat 7, Nova Chat 10, ALT-Chat, Chat-PC, Vantage, Vantage Lite, ECO, Accent 1000, Accent 700, Accent 1200 and SpringBoard Lite and will not include information regarding other similar or related applications.

You do not need to bring an AAC device to this training.
