AACtual AAC Solutions for the Classroom Learning Track- Least to Most Prompting
Target Audience: Educators who work with AAC users This course is designed for continuous learning. It is recommended that participants attend all sessions scheduled for the following dates: 12/3/18, 1/14/19, 2/4/19. Please register for each session individually. Students with complex communication needs can have unique challenges in the classroom. Selecting the appropriate communication tool is an essential part of the battle but teaching a child as well as the communication partners how to use the device efficiently throughout the school day is just as important. In this three-part series, participants will learn how to use a balance of AAC implementation techniques beyond partner-augmented input including least-to-most prompting, teaching with available vocabulary and setting up communication temptations. Participants will have opportunities to practice the different strategies as well as begin planning how to bring each technique back to the classroom. Low tech to high tech systems will be available for hands-on practice; however, participants are encouraged to bring a speech-generating device or communication board/book of their own. When we first introduce AAC, there needs to be an emphasis on modeling without forcing productions from the student. However, only using partner augmented input is not likely to result in sufficient language development for many our AAC users. While prompts are useful tools in teaching, it is essential to use them thoughtfully (Wolery et al., 1986). Participants in this session will learn about the what, why, & how of least-to-most prompting with some controlled practice opportunities including planning forms that you can use the next day.
