Resource Roundup: AAC in Early Intervention

Looking for resources to support use of AAC in Early Intervention? Here’s my curated list of resources, handouts and webinars. I’ve only shared things that I’ve personally used, read and watched. There’s no “perfect” one-size-fits-all resource. So that’s why I use bits and pieces from lots of things.

Giveaway: AAC Feature Matching Chart (enter by 11:59pm CDT on 5/16/21, 3 winners)

I’m doing a giveaway to celebrate Better Hearing & Speech Month and the launch of my Teachers Pay Teachers store.

Update: This giveaway is CLOSED. Congratulations to the giveaway winners! I ended up doing 4 instead of 3. The info was sent to each of them in a private message:

• Nikki Stempien – sent via Facebook messaging

• Holly Suszek – sent via Facebook messaging

• Caroline Madsen – sent via Facebook messaging

• Kimberly Hurley – sent via Instagram messaging

The prize:

  • A copy of the most current version of the Feature Matching Chart for the Top 10 iOS Symbol-Based AAC Apps (5/13/21, a PDF file, only available in English). Note: The giveaway is NOT for a download from my TPT store or for a Ko-fi subscription. It is for access to a link to where you’ll be able to download the PDF from the secret files area on my blog.
  • You can see a preview video of it on my YouTube channel:


Who can enter:

  • Speech Language Pathologists (also known as Speech Language Therapists). SLPs / SLTs outside of the USA are also welcome to enter just be aware that the prize is only available in English. This giveaway is limited to those professionals since it is Better Hearing and Speech Month and they are the ones who primarily do these types of evaluations.

If you are not on Facebook, you can submit your entry via a private message to me on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/omazingkidsaac/ or Twitter: https://www.twitter.com/amoorad. Include a brief description of your role in AAC evaluations and supporting AAC users. Be sure to adjust your social media settings to allow me to reply to your message since that’s how I will be contacting winners.
  • WordPress no longer offers the option for e-mail entry forms on the free blog platform so that’s not an option for this giveaway.

Entry Deadline: 11:59pm CDT on Sunday, 5/16/21

3 winners will be selected and announced within 48 hours of the end of the giveaway. They will each receive a message with a link to where the PDF can be downloaded.

FREE app + PDF with 8 pages of FREE printables to target Core Vocabulary, Articulation & Rhyming (created by Angela Moorad, MS, CCC-SLP, OMazing Kids)

FREE app + PDF with 8 pages of FREE printables to target Core Vocabulary, Articulation & Rhyming

This fun FREE app has lots of opportunities to target core words (I, me, you, not, help, that, find, little, see, look, there, do, open) and directional words (up, down, left, right) as you slide the tabs in the story. Also lots of great rhyming words (bear, square, pear, tear, chair, stair, hair, fair, flare, mare, there, everywhere) that could also be used as articulation targets for kids working on vocalic -air words.

I made 8 pages of free printables to go with the app:

  • response recording form for vocalic -air articulation
  • Core Vocabulary target pages for AAC:
    – LAMP Words for Life
    – Proloquo2go
    – Speak for Yourself
    – Talk Suite Pro
    – TouchChat HD with WordPower
    – Avaz
    – one without symbols

Each of these AAC apps has a symbol finder feature so be sure to use that to become familiar with where these words are located before using this activity.

These Core Vocabulary target pages are intended to be used as a visual reminder of words to target while using an AAC app on one device and the free “Where Is My Little Square Bear?” app on a separate device.

I made these free printables on my iPad using screenshots from free manual boards and/or that AAC app and a template and SymbolStix symbols in the iESLp app (https://apps.apple.com/us/app/ieslp/id912953895, iOS 8.3 or later, $19.99 – such an amazing value with all the templates and SymbolStix symbols included. Pay once… no subscription required).

Making Informed AAC Purchasing Decisions

Making Informed AAC Purchasing Decisions

Thinking about getting an AAC app? Many AAC apps typically go on sale for a few days in April (or May) and October. You can see the pricing history for any app on the AppSliced website (https://appsliced.co/apps) and watch Lauren Enders’ page for her round up posts of AAC app sale dates/details (https://www.facebook.com/LaurenSEndersMaCccSlp/).

.

Looking for a way to try out AAC apps before making a purchasing decision? If you are in the USA, all states are supposed to have an Assistive Technology Lending Library program where you can borrow AAC devices, iPads with AAC apps & other AT for short-term trial. It’s a great way to try various options out before making purchasing decisions. How to find the AT Lending Library in your state: https://www.at3center.net/stateprogram

.

If you are a Speech-Language Pathologist, then see this post for tips on how you can get access to AAC apps: https://omazingkidsllc.com/2021/02/16/how-to-get-access-to-the-top-10-ios-symbol-based-aac-apps-2-16-21-compiled-by-angela-moorad-ms-ccc-slp-omazing-kids-aac-consulting-part-of-a-larger-feature-matching-chart/

Free printable AAC core board with alphabet, numbers, shapes & colors (4 page PDF that you can print, assemble and laminate). It was recently shared in the AAC for the SLP Facebook group (original source seen on Pinterest from the Angelman Syndrome Foundation but the link is broken… appears to be no longer available on their website). I saved it to my blog:

(For this app: https://www.attainmentcompany.com/gotalk-now. The same guide should be applicable to the other versions of the app. I use this version: https://www.attainmentcompany.com/gotalk-now-plus). The Users Guide is also available within the help section in the apps. The Spanish version will only appear if the iPad’s language is set to Spanish (Settings > General > iPad Language & Regions). Then, when in the app, if you go to the Help section it will display the Spanish guide. 

More info: As you adjust the language on that iPad (Settings > General > iPad Language & Regions) the buttons in the app are translated and the user guide has been translated for Chinese, Czech, English, Finnish, German, Italian, Polish, Portuguese, Spanish, Swedish, Turkish, and Ukrainian. Then, for Danish and Greek, the app is translated into the language, but the user guide remains English. 

It is also worth noting that the app can be programmed to speak any language supported by the iPad. For instance, someone who speaks French and has a French keyboard downloaded on their iPad, when they use the text-to-speech within the app, it will speak in French.
