ABCs & AAC: Alphabet Books in AAC Implementation

Overview

There are many ABC books to cover lots of interest areas & span the range of ages. A wide variety of students can relate to them, create custom ones, sing them, sign them, & repeat them over & over again. Alphabet books can connect literacy to communication & give us a purpose to chat. These books set a purpose for a parent to talk with their child, a teacher to start a lesson or a child to reads by themselves. They are prolific & YOU can be using more in your language learning! Join Kelly & learn how to put more ABCs into your AAC!
