Are you looking for a form and idess for guided consultation about using AAC devices in your session between SLP & OT & SPED? I made this list as a way to help myself (as an OT) to remember what kind of language I can use when working with AAC device users. This list can be used as ideas to help incorporate AAC into fine motor / visual motor / PE / gross motor / sensory / self regulation and everyday interventions. This can also be used as a way to consult / collaborate by highlighting ideas for not only OT but paraprofessionals and teachers as well.

- This guide is intended for a newer OT or consultation between SLP, OT and teachers.
- This is related to working with TouchChat but may be applicable to other AAC devices such as Proloquo2Go, NOVA, Dynavox or others.
- This is based on students who are working on producing one to two phrase communication
- This is not an all inclusive list but merely suggestions to start.
- When I had my first student with AAC, I was completely mystified how to incorporate this device into my interventions. After playing with the device and practicing, I felt more confident in using the device to model. It helped me to brainstorm ideas of how / when to use the device.
- No matter how this list is used, teams, SLPs and OTs should always collaborate together to help determine how to incorporate speech and fine motor.
