School Newsletter 27 - InterAACt for Emergent Students

Emergent students are defined as those who are just beginning to communicate using a variety of methods including gestures, body language, facial expression, and a few simple and easily recognized and concrete symbols (e.g., dog, cookie). At the emergent level, students might only be able to communicate a limited number of messages in small set of specific contexts and routines. You might not even be sure that they understand everything that goes on around them. While you might not immediately think of using high-tech AAC devices with emergent students, you will find that InterAACt, the language system found on all DynaVox products, can support the day-to-day communication as well as build language and literacy skills for emergent communicators.
