Due to public health concerns about the Covid-19 virus, PRC-Saltillo will only be providing in-person trainings when we can comply with CDC and local guidelines, and we feel we can ensure the health and safety of our hosts, attendees, and trainers. As conditions change, trainings may be moved online, as necessary. If you have questions about PRC-Saltillo trainings, please email



Basic requesting is a good place to start when introducing someone to communicating with AAC.  However, requesting is only one of many reasons people communicate.  This one-hour implementation class reviews how people use language to communicate and what you can do to help individuals get beyond basic requesting.  Practical examples and materials will be used throughout the course.

Learner Outcomes

  1. Name five functions of communication (reasons people communicate other than requesting)
  2. Choose appropriate vocabulary to target a variety of communication functions
  3. Structure an activity to target a variety of communication functions
