This week, Chris interviews with AAC enthusiast, SLP, and TWT podcast listener Sarah Gregory (@SGregorySLP on Twitter) about “authentic” inclusion, social belonging, peer modeling, universal access, and more! Before the interview, Chris and Rachel talk about Rachel’s upcoming trip to Nepal to train and coach teachers and caregivers about AAC!
Key ideas this week:
🔑 If we include students with complex communication needs into a general education classroom, we should try and help them feel they are part of the class and they have friends in the class. See this graphic by Shelley Moore.
🔑 Running peer modeling groups in school is a great way to teach everyone in school about AAC & celebrate our differences.
🔑 Culturally responsible teaching - can we structure classrooms so that AAC users are better represented?
