Can You Walk and Talk at the Same Time? - A Communication Board for A.P.E. from Susan Berkowitz, slp

I work primarily with students who use picture-based alternative communication (AAC) systems.  They don't have speech, or have very minimal speech, so I try to make sure they have complete, powerful AAC systems with which to communicate.

I like to have topic-specific communication boards that are core word based in specific locations in the class and school. 

Even when students have their own robust communication systems they sometimes forget them. Some students don’t carry their aac devices to activities that involve a lot of running or moving around - like their time at recess, physical education, or in the motor lab.

Whether you're sitting, walking, or jumping, Keep on Talking!
