AAC users need 200 opportunities each day to practice using their AAC systems to become competent communicators. While optimal teaching stresses use of AAC in the context of daily routines and events, SLPs have intervention sessions to fill with additional practice.
What better way than with activities that simulate real-life experiences.
This set of activities and games is meant to work with the core vocabulary provided in my More Core Words Books set.
Included in this resource are:
communication boards of different sizes to use; including a board for these 12 words, a 36 location board with only the first 18 words filled in (this provides for stability of location as more words are added),
large picture/word cards to hang up in the classroom as a class communication board, and a set to use for the core word Word Wall (these are found at the end, pg.54-55).
a set of playing cards; you choose how many to use and make 2 copies of each; students play a “Go Fish”-type of game
shopping trip simulation where students get to “purchase” candy and stickers
a categorization cooperative activity in which students give and follow directions, ask and answer questions
a farm activity where students give and follow directions involving animals and a barn
a game (with a game board & spinner & pieces) where students gather tokens and use mine, it, that, you.
additional activity suggestions, including some that get the kids up and moving
data sheets for time delay prompting for errorless learning (a blank one & 2 filled in)
