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.

The 2021 PRC AAC Literacy Planner was developed to provide emergent literacy activities for students who use Augmentative Alternative Communication (AAC) from 3rd grade up to provide access to the content of books often read by their peers. This year’s Planner is a book club theme. Why a book club? A book club offers readers the chance to make choices about what they read through communication and literacy activities. It also provides opportunities for learning and socialization. During this 30 minute session we’ll go through the components of this year’s Planner. You’ll see how to use the resources to engage your older emergent readers who use AAC. Leave this session ready to read!
This session is designed for educators, classroom staff, speech-language pathologists, parents, and anyone who wants to support an emergent learner using PRC language systems with literacy activities.
