Click To Play

This week, Rachel, Lucas, and Chris are joined by Dr. Eric Sanders for a discussion of how we can help augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) users develop reading and writing (i.e., literacy) skills.

Questions addressed include: 

Should we support AAC users in their development of reading and writing skills?

What is the role of story time and shared reading in emerging literacy?

What kinds of activities and goals encourage the development of reading fluency?

How can we support a comprehensive reading approach for children who use AAC?

Eric Sanders, PhD, CCC-SLP is an AAC specialist and professor at Pacific University, Oregon whose areas of expertise include the development of literacy and language skills by AAC users and individuals with intellectual disabilities.
