Write to Talk/Talk to Write: Using AAC Devices and Alternative Pencils

October 14, 2019 @ 8:00 am - 4:00 pm

When you ask to see students who are writing, do you observe students who are: practicing handwriting? copying? filling in worksheets? doing nothing? Too often, students who are AAC users have minimal opportunities to engage in writing. This workshop will focus on the integral relationship between communication and the writing process . . . and how easily that is overlooked for AAC users. This workshop will begin with structured writing (ex: using slot fillers with predetermined choices) and move quickly to generative writing (ex: generating novel thought and translating it into text, using the alphabet, word prediction, abbreviation-expansion, device dictionaries, word banks, etc.) Multiple alternative pencils will be demonstrated. Various writing frameworks will be demonstrated. A wide range of student writing samples will be shared. The workshop incorporates high-success, daily writing activities across curriculum areas that are meaningful and motivating.
