This resource can be used with all ages! Research shows that children need less repetition when learning through play. If you have clients that are classified as emergent communicators, no matter the age, this resource will be great to have in your AAC toolbox. This resource can be used with clients with high-tech AAC devices and preverbal clients that are using core boards while they develop verbal speech.
When I first started working with emergent communicators, I had difficulty coming up with core vocabulary terms on the spot. I was also putting too much of a communication demand on my clients by asking too many questions. As I researched and gained more experience, I started creating “cheat sheets” to help me as I learned more about core vocabulary.
This Resources Includes….
1.Three core “cheat sheets” which provide a variety of core vocabulary terms to use. It also includes different phrases you can comment using core vocabulary.
2.Colored and black and white copies of the cheat sheets.
