Simple ways to support AAC learners

Each letter of Simple AAC represents a different strategy which can be used to support someone to learn to use symbols to communicate. From modelling and making things interesting, to thinking about the different ways we can respond to AAC learners.

Each strategy is explained in a way that is easy to understand – whether you have just started working with AAC, are looking to develop your skills, or are looking for an easy way to explain these strategies to other people.
