Down with Demands; Up with Invitations!

Too often, we make unrelenting demands on individuals who use AAC
- Show me _______
- Where is ________
- Direct Questions:  'What do you want?'  'How do you feel?'
- Drill & Kill - constant inauththentic activities

This can be overwhelming to students who are learning AAC, and may be impossible for students with apraxia.

Instead of constant demands, let's change to . . . 

Invitations means that we:
- Motivate (fun, interactive, authentic activities)
- Model 
- Reflect ('I think you're saying __________'; 'Are you telling me _______?')
- Pause (expectantly)
- Move on!  If students don't respond, we continue to motivate, model, reflect and pause!

For more information and ideas, watch the webinars of the Angelman Communication Training Series.
