Resources icon

Families, teachers, and therapists around the globe are working hard to make distance learning effective for all types of students.  What does this look like for students who use AAC?  The following list is based on a presentation given on March 31st, 2020. It is not comprehensive, but rather a starting point.

I hope that this compilation will provide a useful guide. Please feel free to add your favorite resources to the comments below! I will add links to this post. Click on the image below for the PDF of the slide deck. Activities and links are also listed below.
