Teaching Language Skills Informally with AAC Systems


Robin Shobe, MS, CCC-SLP

About the Course

Understanding how children acquire language skills is an essential precondition for turning everyday activities into rich language learning experiences. In this course, Robin Shobe introduces a set of strategies that facilitate language acquisition for children who use AAC systems either as their primary mode of communication or as a way to supplement their limited verbal skills. A main interest of her discussion lies in creating awareness for informal learning opportunities that occur throughout a child’s day – at home, at school, and in the community. This course is a recording of a presentation given at the AAC Bootcamp conference organized by Adler’s Voice in February 2016.
