Developing Language and Communication Power using a Core Vocabulary Classroom Approach

Uploaded: February 4, 2013 |  0 Comments  | 

How can a school district provide an appropriate and meaningful education for a diverse population of students who use AAC systems or devices? This session addresses that question by focusing on the use of core vocabulary as a means to provide an appropriate and meaningful education for students using AAC systems in both special and general education classes. Part 1 lays the theoretical groundwork for the need for core over content vocabulary, along with the development of AAC systems that are core vocabulary and language friendly. It specifically addresses frequently voiced rationales for not focusing on core vocabulary.
