While it is a common misconception that AAC is only used for individuals with limited verbal language abilities with complex communication needs, it can also be successfully used as a medium to support the academic and social growth of students without communication delays. This session will show how the Park Hill School District utilizes AAC across the academic school day, in social settings, and in special classes, with a range of ages and ability levels. Examples are provided across the age continuum from preschool through high school. Tools such as Saltillo’s ChatEditor™ and TouchChat® by Saltillo app with WordPower™ are highlighted as a way to support the planning and implementation of language groups, academic activities, literacy, writing, social skills, play routines, social communication, email communication and much more.
