        Using AAC to Communicate About a Book | English Language Arts Strategies for Students with Cognitive Disabilities

        In this self-contained lower elementary classroom, a student uses an augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) device to communicate with the teacher about a self-selected alphabet book. The teacher and the student work together to navigate through the communication system. The student starts by turning the pages back to a page he wants and the teacher helps support his efforts in getting to the desired page. The teacher notices his finger on a word at the top of the page (this is easy to miss if you are not looking for it) and then together they locate the page that helps him communicate about and explore alphabet letters. The video demonstrates effective strategies for engaging students with significant cognitive disabilities in literacy instruction.
