For some reason, I find myself constantly running out of activities to target following directions. Especially activities that can be used year round! I recently implemented centers in several of my groups and love having an “app station” for students to use my iPad. Enter in Seasonal Directions, a great app that I’ve used a […]

Let’s Learn Emotions App Review

Personally, I feel like AAC is often underutilized in our field. Oftentimes, this can be due to lack of access to the appropriate technology, cost limitations, or time limitations. We learned in grad school that AAC is appropriate for anybody who cannot meet 100% of their communication needs in a day. I love many things […]

Speechy Musings Go To Language Apps

I once read an AAC article that stated “Communication is the essence of life.” How cool is that?

Because of this, I feel like I have very high, sometimes possibly unrealistic expectations for AAC […]
