Communication Partner Instruction in AAC: SMoRRESTM and Partner-Augmented Input
Friday & Saturday, March 5-6, 2021
Web-Based Workshop

Download the brochure or register online - Evidence-based research supports the use of partner-augmented input (PAI), also known as aided language modeling, as an intervention strategy for individuals who use augmentative and alternative communication (AAC). There are multiple benefits of modeling AAC use, but how can this be done effectively across a child?s many environments? All of a child's communication partners must be taught how to model on the child's speech generating device (SGD) to create an immersion environment for learning the new language!
