USSAAC webinar series
Presenters: Jill Senner, PhD, CCC-SLP & Matthew Baud, MS, CCC-SLP
"Evidence-based research supports the use of partner-augmented input (PAI), also known as aided language modeling, as an intervention strategy for children who use AAC. PAI can be done at home, school, and in the community by a variety of communication partners, including family members, teachers and peers. In this introductory session, attendees will learn what PAI is, why it’s important to use, and how to provide models. We will use our mnemonic, SMoRRES to help participants remember the steps to successful modeling. Videotaped demonstrations of strategy will also be shown."
