“I’ve got something to say” – A lecture series presented by people who use Augmentative and Alternative Communication.
AAC IN THE INCLUSIVE CLASSROOM
Max, Pete and Matt are an awesome AAC team in a mainstream classroom and, when paired with a great group of classmates, it’s a recipe for success.
Max is a 12 year old boy who wants to learn like everyone else. Max has both a PODD communication book and eye gaze device to support his communication and learning requirements. His SSO, Pete and teacher, Matt, are there to help, but Max is encouraged to take an active role in his own learning.
