AAC Implementation Training Handbook Resource Toolkit Core Vocabulary - AdaptEd4SpecialEd AAC Implementation Training Handbook Resource Toolkit Core Vocabulary - AdaptEd4SpecialEd
AAC Implementation Training... $39.97 USD
The AAC Handbook and Toolkit is a great resource for educators who want to ensure the entire team (parents, teachers, support staff, etc.) has the knowledge and resources necessary for implementing and teaching AAC.   My love of AAC began years ago, when I worked with my first AAC client fresh out of school- an amazing girl with Cerebral Palsy who opened my eyes up to the world of AAC. Along the way I've learned that many of us, no matter how great our intentions are, struggle to implement AAC in a way that works for students & their teams.  My passion and goal is to make AAC implementation more straight-forward (and more enjoyable because AAC is so dang necessary)! This AAC handbook gives you the information you need to get the whole team (teacher, SLP, professionals, paraprofessionals) on board with current AAC strategies.  This resources includes three sections as follows: AAC Training Handbook  AAC Toolkit  the visuals and materials you need to embed AAC naturally throughout the day.  + Video Instruction for each material to ensure the team knows how to implement each strategy effectively.  AAC Data Sheets  AAC Participation Plan   As a licensed SLP, I've had a lot of experience with AAC.  I've witnessed, many times over, that AAC success hinges on one very important factor: consistency. AAC users need and deserve consistent exposure to communication and modeling.  To get this consistency, they need all important members of their life on board with their communication system.  It's no secret that many educational teams struggle with AAC consistency.  Do I believe that this happens because teams don't care or put in the effort?  No.  I believe it happens because teams need more support. A handbook can help people learn the basic skills that they need.  (And that's why I wrote one!)   But I don't believe in stopping at a handbook. I believe in supporting teachers and educational professionals in incorporating AAC into classrooms in a way that is simple, cohesive, and natural.  So, enter the AAC in the Toolkit. This kit delivers a plethora of materials to get you started with ease.  Because your team doesn't just need AAC info dumped in your laps- - - You all need practical ways to help you implement what you've learned. This resource also includes data sheets, classroom visuals, Google Slides access to edit the icons, core vocabulary boards, clear directions for modeling, AAC research citations, staff handouts, and so much more! This packet does not include information about AAC assessment (which is really a separate training that is valuable to seek out).  It is also important to note that this product may be used with any type of AAC.  It will not give any device-specific information. If you have any questions about this packet, please email me at krystie@adapted4specialed.com and I'll get back to you as soon as possible.   Spanish parent handbook is included.  ___________________________________ Copyright © AdaptEd 4 Special Ed Permission to copy for single classroom use only.

AAC Word Builder Set 1: 20 ... $59.99 USD

Meg's lesson plans are a well-rounded set of materials that she knows will work for a wide range of students. Weekly Materials Include: Introductory Game Animated E-Book Movement Break Interactive Activity Additional Video/Book Activity Parent Handout Homework Need more lessons? Click Here to View Set 2 Need more lessons? Click Here to View Set 3 Focus Words These core vocabulary plans take the most common words used in everyday language and teaches them in context - opening up a world of communication for special learners. AAC Core Vocabulary Focus Words: Go (2 lessons) Turn (2 lessons) Eat Come Put Help Not/Don't (2 lessons) Like Open Want All Done More What? I/You On Off Drink What's Included: Lessons for each AAC Word includes:  Introductory Game: Every lesson plan comes with a low-pressure game or activity to help introduce the target core word. These games are individually crafted for each specific lesson. Animated E-Book: Real images are carefully collected and arranged in each book, resulting in unique and aesthetically pleasing material. Each book page (a minimum of 10 pages per book) has a moving component to grab attention and keep students engaged. Movement Break: It's crucial to recognize that students need time to move their bodies (especially with all of the screen-time in the current world). Each lesson plan comes with a suggested movement break that is related to the target core word. These range from simple (links for dance videos) to more complex (games designed around movement). Additional Activity: All lesson plans include an extra activity that may center around a song, a video, a book or even a guided drawing. Parent Handout: We are all about supporting our students to the fullest. Core vocabulary, like anything, has its best chance of success when it is used across settings. Parent handouts are provided for each core word to ensure that parents have some direction for practicing core vocabulary at home! Homework:  Each lesson includes a simple homework activity. These are easily shared with parents electronically. From a "book report" that can be used any week, to specific homework based on a target word- we've got you covered.
