As you may know, Deanna Wagner and I are really wild about the benefits of poetry for all learners, but especially for people who use AAC. We recently finished a book about Poetry for Teachers Pay Teachers , and are working on a book with ideas for highly accessible list poems and poetry starters.
We have recently started an Instagram account, poetrypoweraac to share amazing things that people who use AAC and struggling writers are creating.
Follow us on Instragram to see poetry samples and more!

For December, we are focusing on ‘poetic language’. This means that we will be sharing ways that people we know use language poetically – even when they are not actively creating a poem!
See you on Instagram!
