I've always struggled to gain staff buy in for using AAC throughout the day. I know the benefits of modeling AAC in order to improve student outcomes, but teachers and staff members have a lot going on. I have made countless picture cards, choice boards, and core boards that I see go used when I am not in the classroom.
I decided to offer classroom staff the opportunity to track their AAC use and offer an incentive for those who are most actively modeling AAC.
This resource is suggested to be posted in a classroom and used to track staff modeling of AAC. I enter teachers into a raffle and offer gift cards as I first introduce AAC in the classrooms.
Eventually, as teachers see the effectiveness of AAC I don't have to offer prizes (or at least as often).
