Beyond Requesting: I Definitely Have More to Say

Description

Where do you typically start when introducing augmentative and alternative communication (AAC)?  If you are like most people, you probably start with activities where an individual can request a motivating object or action. But, what happens next?  What happens when we run out of things to request?  What happens when AAC users seem “bored” by requesting? What happens when the situation doesn’t allow for requesting?

In this session, we will help you develop specific strategies to go beyond requesting…into the world of asking questions, making comments, protesting, expressing opinions, and other communicative functions.   We will use lecture, discussion, video examples, and small-group activities to explore the power of various communicative functions, vocabulary selection, teaching strategies, and specific ways to facilitate communication beyond requesting.

Learning Objectives: Following this session, participants  will be able to:

● Name two communicative functions beyond requesting and describe why they are powerful.
● Identify messages and corresponding communicative functions within motivating
● List 2 partner communication strategies that will facilitate communication beyond requesting.
● Develop a plan to teach at least one communicative function to an individual using AAC in an everyday setting.
