AAC Language Lab Review

  1. Kayla P says:

    Hi Shannon! I just subscribed to Language Lab and I can already tell it was worth the money. How easy has it been for you to adapt the visuals and lessons for non-unity devices? Most of my AAC students use SymbolStix or Boardmaker symbols. Any tips or good shortcuts you have found?

    • Shannon says:

      Good question! It really depends on the student. For some students, I don’t necessary adapt the materials, I just model the vocabulary on their system as we do the activities as planned. For some other students, I make custom materials using the lesson plans for Language Lab using their symbols. One thing I’ve done that has made things WAY easier, is to print a page of symbols from a students device (e.g., a page of “love” symbols) and then glue them onto books or worksheets to supplement words or other symbols. I plan to do a blog post about this process next week so stay tuned! Hope that’s helpful!

    What age range would you say these lesson plans would work for?

    Hey Shannon, I was introduced to this site yesterday. Can you tell me more about the smartcharts and how to use them?
    Thanks,
    Robin

      Absolutely! The SmartCharts show you how to find the targeted vocabulary for each unit. It’s important to note though that this section is incredibly Unity specific!
