Dynamic Therapy Associates, Inc. is a family-focused speech language pathology practice. We provide articulation, language, oral-motor/feeding, and AAC services to our patients.
When it comes to selecting the right AAC solution, it’s crucial to involve the students themselves in the decision-making process.
While the primary goal of AAC is to provide a means of communication for those who struggle with speech, it's important to recognize that AAC doesn't replace speech; instead, it complements and enhances it.
In the journey of selecting vocabulary targets for students using Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC), it's important to consider not only functional communication but also the social and relationship building value of interaction.
As parents and professionals, it's important to remember that embracing mistakes and continuing to learn is not only natural but also incredibly beneficial for the children we are supporting.
It’s very easy to get caught in the habit of asking questions that only require a “yes” or “no” response when you are talking to your student using AAC. Why?
