Lisa Erwin-Davidson: Researching Core Language & AAC for Preschool Children

October 23, 2019

We need your help to keep Talking with Tech going strong! If you are a loyal listener, please support our podcast at patreon.com/talkingwithtech.

This week, Rachel interviews Dr. Lisa Erwin-Davidson (www.lisa-aac.com) about some of the questions Lisa had working as an AAC specialist, what answers about language she has discovered in her research, and her areas of interest she is exploring next!! Lisa is a faculty member at CSU Fullerton who has conducted research into how preschoolers with and without disabilities are taught core language, and she has unique insights into how core language develops!

 

Key ideas this week:

 

🔑 Rachel gives an update on the family from the “Aggressive Behaviors” episode. 

 

🔑 One type of core word, a “concept relational word” (e.g., in/out, before/after, big/little), can make an excellent target for beginning AAC interventions.

 

🔑 Infusing graphic language into daily routines, whether done by teachers or parents, is a great way to expand how often AAC is modeled and used throughout the day.
