Sight Word Readers & AAC

Sight word readers are a great way to target vocabulary for AAC users. They are usually short, repetitive and contain core vocabulary as well as seasonal or high interest vocabulary. Check out this FREEBIE on Teachers Pay Teachers: https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Christmas-Sight-Word-Books-FREEBIE-399329

I currently have patients using Speak For Yourself, LAMP Words For Life & TouchChat so I am going to print symbols for the core vocabulary (has, get, on, can) from those AAC apps. I saved the PDF of the free sight word reader books in iBooks on my second iPad and will use the symbols with that while we use my main iPad or the patient’s device (for those who have one) as the “talker”. I’ll also do programming to add any seasonal fringe vocabulary that may not already be in the AAC apps.

See these posts for more free printable sight word readers:

.Disclaimer: I believe in a “balanced” approach to AAC with a good mix of core vocabulary and fringe vocabulary customized to that child’s particular interests. See this post from PrAACtical AAC: http://bit.ly/1Ds1d4x

I’m so very tired of seeing posts in Facebook groups with heated debates between folks who are diehard “core only” and those who are “noun only”. Folks get so focused on defending their approach that they lose sight of what an individual AAC user may need or that AAC should be fun.

{FREE printable} Story props for The Squeaky, Creaky Bed

The Squeaky, Creaky Bed - free printable story props from OMazing Kids

 

.

I love using books with great repeated lines & funny sounds in OMazing Kids speech therapy so I couldn’t resist a great deal on a used copy of The Squeaky, Creaky Bed by Pat Thomson on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Squeaky-Creaky-Bed-Pat-Thomson/dp/038574630X.

I was surprised that I couldn’t find any free story props for the book online. So I made some and am sharing them with you for FREE ’cause that’s how this SLP rolls. {I guess I come from an era before TPT when SLPs shared things more freely with each other.}
