This session will cover many important aspects of best practices in augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) selection and implementation. Overall page design and the three types of organizational strategies of dynamic display systems will be reviewed. Several popular iOS apps following these strategies will be compared to see how intuitive they really are. Implementation strategies will focus on connection, interaction, and motivating activities while still targeting concept learning. Communication partner support will be emphasized, and strategies will be reviewed that teachers, support staff, and parents can utilize.
