Looking for interactive language lessons to support the AAC learning of Core Word Vocabulary in sessions for Aided Language Input? These digital downloads were developed to be used with PowerPoint -- loaded onto a computer, tablet, Smartphone or Smartboard.
Each Core Vocabulary Word includes 10 slides to MODEL, MODEL, MODEL for your learners WHAT word is being targeted, WHERE they can find that same word/icon on their Core Word Board (CWB) or AAC device, and give examples of WHEN (in what context) to use it. Many slides provide more than one opportunity to demonstrate the word, with several clicks of the Core Vocabulary icon, moving additional items within the scene.
These slides also have the potential for providing: REPETITION, ESTABLISHING VISUAL REGARD, ANSWERING WH QUESTIONS, answering YES/NO QUESTIONS, and other language concepts.
This bundle includes: GO * EAT * ON
Pair with hands-on activities to reinforce the concepts after watching the interactive slides.
Examples: GO: use wind-up toys to model the icon GO and give each child a turn to tell you to make it GO by touching their CWB or AAC device icon for GO.
EAT: use a puppet and various foods the puppet can EAT
ON: use a toy that you have to put ON to another, such as stacking ice cream scoops or requesting to put a car ON a ramp
When the presentation loads, you most likely will need to switch from EDIT to PLAY mode, such as selecting the “Slide Show” tab and then selecting “From Beginning” on the far left.
On the Title page of the Bundled sets, you can click on the specific Core Vocabulary icon that you want to target, and it will take you to the beginning of that specific set of 10 slides.
Remember the tenet of AAC: MODEL, MODEL, MODEL…and why it is so important.Model the word by activating the Core Vocabulary (CV) icon and watching the scene come to life FIRST… and THEN, require imitation (if the child is ready) by finding the same icon on their AAC device or Core Word Board.
Use the TURN icon to “turn the page” to the next slide each time, providing an additional CV word to target.
Use the GO BACK icon to return to the previous page.
When activated on Bundled slides, the FINISHED icons will lead you to a break in the slides (ie: a white slide with only icons for TURN and GO BACK) to signify that the set of 10 slides for a particular icon are finished. At the end of the slide show, the FINISHED icons will return the user to the beginning of the slide show.
If there are any questions, concerns, requests (ie: Does your user need a different icon for the Core Vocabulary icon than what was provided in these slides? Are the backgrounds of the slides I’ve created too distracting for some users? Would you prefer more detail within the scenes?), PLEASE do not hesitate to contact me:
