Students will begin to develop narrative skills as they build their use of language through AAC.
Developing narrative skills in our students is critical for their academic and social success. This Professional Development handout discusses types of narratives, why they are important to develop explicitly in students who are AAC users, and how to develop them.
-includes step-by-step suggestions, rationale, methods, background
→ A 30 core word communication board is provided as a starting point for beginning AAC users.
→ There are 4 sets of visual cues for story elements, narrative frame and visual narrative maps provided, to use in developing narratives with your students.
→ REVISED: now also includes 8 pages of larger cue cards to explore each step in the narrative. Great for students who can write, or for focus on one step at a time.
