In collaborating with teachers, parents, and speech-language pathologists, I have come to appreciate the challenges associated with using AAC systems in the public schools. The Web can serve as a tremendous resource in addressing these challenges. Web sites provide a plethora of helpful and free information about AAC, but searching for such information can be both overwhelming and time-consuming. This list includes Web resources that will empower school teams with practical information as they work to develop their students’ functional use of AAC.
http://aac.unl.edu: The Barkley Center faculty and students at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln developed this site, which provides extensive information in many areas of AAC. The section on vocabulary offers multiple lists of vocabulary/messages. These lists can be very helpful to teams who are developing communication boards or setting up communication devices. This site also includes links to educational software and AAC vendors. Finally, don’t miss the link to Augmentative and Alternative Communication Connecting Young Kids (YAACK). This section specifically directed to parents and professionals who are just beginning the AAC process with young children.
