Have you ever worked in one of those awesome classrooms where everyone gets on board with AAC? A classroom where you can walk into the room at any given time and you know your students are going to have their devices right next to them? It’s a rare and magical place and I love it! This week, another SLP and I decided to have a THANK YOU lunch for one of our magical classrooms. In addition to implementing communication systems, they have spent the last month learning how to use alternative pencils with their students.
We bought pizza and soda and got down to thanking the amazing paraprofessionals (and teacher!) who have gotten on board with communication and literacy. One of their students was still at school and came to the party. While everyone was talking about how great things have been going, the student reached for his device and said “fun.” And he was so right! It was fun and special! I can’t wait to see what more this classroom has to offer!
