It's important to remember that technology for communication helps improve the lives of people inside and outside of school. The following video clip shows the story of Elle. I think this video is great because it shows Elle using an AAC device and also talks about the process her family went through to receive the device. As you create your own instructional sessions, think about how AAC devices fit into your domain!
As you know technology has evolved immensely over the past couple of decades. It helps make our everyday lives easier and greatly improves the lives of people with disabilities. Communication disorders affect many people in America, and as teachers we need to be equipped to work with students who have to deal with these disorders. Technology can help us reach students with communication disorders and give them a voice. As teachers, let's embrace technology and all that it can offer our students!!!
