When you work in schools, you might feel like you’re drowning in paperwork while trying to service a large caseload and juggle your students, teachers, parents and administration. Where does AAC fit in with all of that going on?
Device selection and funding – when working with your district, there may be guidelines about which programs are available to you.
Lingraphica will thoroughly research all funding options for a device. If we can obtain the device through the student’s insurance, your student will own their device, making it easier to ensure that the student always has access to their device.
Maintaining access to the AAC device in all environments, including in every classroom as well as at home.
Lingraphica can provide resources and research supporting the need for AAC access in all environments – and help to train teachers and parents.
Getting parents and teachers involved and trained on AAC.
Lingraphica provides unlimited training and support to all users and communication partners. Let Lingraphica schedule time with the student’s parents and teachers to teach them how – and why – to use the device.
Limited time for device trials.
If you have a student that you think is a candidate but simply don’t have time for a device trial – or don’t want to work within the confines of the district’s guidelines – Lingraphica can take the reins on the device trial. Our team will provide a loaner device, train the student and their family, and keep you in the loop.
Tips for Schools
- Encouraging your student to use the same AAC device in as many contexts as possible helps your student to carry over skills and communicate in all environments.
- Personalize the student’s device so they have pages for each class/activity they’re in, as well as their home life. Lingraphica can help with pre-made vocabulary templates and a team of customization specialists ready to input your student’s specific information
