TTT Event: Story Time with AAC (Alternative Augmentative Communication)

A session to show how stories can be read using an AAC device to support AAC users in actively participating in story time. AAC stands for Augmentative and Alternative Communication. AAC includes strategies (e.g. signing, gesture, etc.) and equipment (e.g. a symbol chart, an alphabet chart, a simple talking button, a more complex computer-based voice output communication aid, etc.) that support or replace speech. This session will focus on how to use a high-tech voice output communication aid to support AAC users to access all the benefits of storytime. This session is most suitable for children aged 3 to 8 years, but older children can also participate. Parents and siblings can attend to learn how to use an AAC device interactively to support AAC in storytelling. At the end of the session, there will be an opportunity to ask questions and discuss how book reading can be continued at home and in the library using an AAC device.
