AAC Language Lab Website

This wonderful resource from the Prentke Romich Company provides a vast array of resources to support people who use AAC, regardless of the system they use – AND for their parents, speech-language pathologists (SLPs), and educators!

The website includes both free materials and an extensive array of support materials on a subscription basis.

Categories include:
LESSON PLANS:  Offer materials such as books, games, Smart Charts (showing how to find a target set of language on a device), and Common Core Standards by grade level.

LANGUAGE STAGES:  Specialized information for parents, SLPs, and educators, showing how to support students at language Stages 1 – 6.

RESOURCES:  Again, resources are provided targeted to parents, SLPs, and educators.  For example, a free resource is an article explaining core words, while a subscription activity presents A Year of Core Words (materials to teach 144 core word across a year, including Smart Charts).

LANGUAGE BLOG:  This free section offers AAC Success Stories to Making AAC Work – tips from Jane Odom, with blog posts from Model, Model, Model to Talk Like a Pirate!  People who use AAC and family members can also contribute to this free blog section!

APPLAB:  Info about apps created to support students using AAC at various stages.

This website is DEFINITELY worth the subscription price of $84 a year ($7 a month!)
