We are like every other AAC family.
Despite all the blog posts I've written this month about providing an AAC immersion educational setting for kindergarten at home for our son, we struggle daily. Sometimes we go long stretches of the day without modeling language on Nathaniel's device. There are times we have to search for the device to advert a communication frustration meltdown. Sometimes we leave the device in the car. Under the bed. In the other room. Sometimes we are too tired, too hurried, to doubtful that this will really work.
Like other AAC families, we need constant encouragement to keep on keeping on.
We need simple ideas of incorporating language into our lives that require little set up, little clean up, and no expense.
