AAC use can be very overwhelming initially. I always tell my families, give yourself GRACE. To start, here’s 3 things to consider.
- Keep the device accessible – this means the child has access to it, within arms reach, AT ALL TIMES. No excuses!
- Make sure it’s charged – it should be charged every night while the child is sleeping, just like cell phones.
- Have a low-tech system handy – take screenshots of each page and put them together in a binder for emergencies.
