Thanks for sharing about your child’s use of AAC! I’m seeing a lot of successful use of various AAC strategies at the office.
As a reminder, since I’m new to the group, I don’t feel comfortable commenting on any specific AAC product. However, I will direct group members to various resources that may relevant to a current discussion topic. Given the interest in Apps and mobile devices, the AAC Institute’s Board approved a related Position statement in 2011. The statement can be found at our Facebook page. In addition, our clinical staff created a valuable AACtion Point on “iPads, Apps and AAC” that I attached. This can be downloaded from http://www.icantalkclinic.com/aaction-points.html.
Given my experience meeting families and children using AAC here so far, I recognize the importance of the time needed for an evaluation and learning about all the features and functions that may or may not be available on an app before selecting something.
