School Newsletter - 15 - 5 Ways to Support Writing for Students who use AAC

The ability to read and write is one of the most important skills a student will learn in school. However, students with significant speech and language disabilities often demonstrate significantly decreased literacy abilities. Without literacy, an individual is significantly limited in the educational, vocational, and social opportunities found in almost all activities of daily living. When we think about our students with complex communication needs (CCN), we need to remember that literacy and communication are extremely interrelated. The better the student’s literacy skills - the better their communication will be and vice- versa. In this issue, we will discuss ways to use the V/Vmax to support writing.the pre-programmed V/Vmax calendars, students are able to discuss the day, month and date as well as special events during this interactive classroom activity. In addition, it can be used to share stories and communicate, as a personal planner or visual support. Use this resource to learn more.
