Augmentative and Alternative Communication, is the communication methods used to supplement or replace speech or writing for those with impairments in the production or comprehension of spoken or written language. My question is how AAC effects learning for a student. I work with special needs students everyday during my school day and most of the students in class are non- verbal. The reason I want to learn more about how they learn is because I want to be a special education teacher. The picture below is of a students “talkbox,” and his home page of words. It is actually just an Ipad with an application that allows students to communicate, when they are unable to on their own. This device is one of the key tools used to help students learn.
