So you have taken the first steps on your AAC journey to modeling core language, but how do you continue to grow your AAC learners language skills? Making sure that target a variety of reasons for communication will provide more opportunities for growing language. Expanding on the messages that use core words will help you take those next steps with using AAC. We will explore three simple steps, with different everyday activities, to help you and your child learn to use his/her device more effectively at home: choosing a communication function, choosing core words and phrases, writing a script for aided language input, and practicing how you model on the device.
