Partner Augmented Input in the Classroom Facebook group - This group is for speech-language pathologists (SLPs), educators, and assistive technology (AT) specialists who are bringing modeling to their classrooms by providing staff instruction in partner-augmented input. The goal of the group is to provide a forum for sharing resources and successes as well as to provide support for school teams who are facing implementation challenges when serving students using augmentative and alternative communication (AAC).
