Family Center on Technology and Disability (FCTD) Online Discussion: Augmentative Communication & Vocabulary Selection

Monday, April 2, 2007- Monday, April 30, 2007
Location: Online Discussion

Starts April 2, 2007

There is much more to selecting vocabulary for augmentative communication devices than choosing words that seem essential. In the FCTD April online discussion, Katya Hill from the University of Pittsburgh and Robin Hurd of the AAC Institute will explore the process of selecting vocabulary for effective augmentative communication. Among the topics to be discussed are high frequency vocabulary for language development, strategies for expanding vocabulary choices, use of social stories, and methods for monitoring vocabulary growth.

Professionals and families are encouraged to participate. To join the discussion, visit the Family Center on Technology and Disability web board beginning April 2, 2007.
