Susan Berkowitz's AAC from A to Z: C is for Core

Finding bite-sized, simple and direct instructions to give to parents and teachers can be difficult. Many discussions about Augmentative-Alternative Communication get too technical too quickly.

That's why I created these short explainer videos for parents, teachers - even SLPs who are new to AAC.
This week, I'm sharing C is for Core.
Core vocabulary is crucial in developing language skills among students who are learning to use AAC.  Use of core words is what allows us to generate new messages all the time, with a limited number of words.  
For the average adult, that number is between 300-500 words.  Not very many when you think of all the words we know!

Enjoy, and keep on talking - in pictures.
