This session will focus on an AAC Mentor Program implemented in a K-8 public school district in the CA Bay Area which includes a set of tools and strategies for enhancing collaborative AAC support teams. Mentors who helped launch and support the trial “training year” will share the justifications, methods, and challenges that were part of a project to achieve a more robust and sustainable level of AAC services. Attendees will be given access to tools developed to assist SLPs, administrators, classroom staff, and parents in supporting students who use AAC.
