It’s good to hear the professors saying what we say everyday on the “front lines” of treatment. To me this statement means that if I’m pulling a student’s hand to their AAC symbols, I better be very sure that I’m leading them to say what they want to say.

I’m not a fan of hand over hand “prompting” for 3 reasons:
1. It’s very easy to make a student say something they don’t mean to say- so that’s not actually teaching communication.
2. We are teaching students the underlying concept that it’s acceptable for other people to physically “make” me do something I don’t want to do- so that’s not teaching self-advocacy OR communication.
3. If the student is not actively engaged in making the choice to move their body to express something, it’s MUCH harder for them to learn how to independently express that message- so that’s not actually teaching communication, either.

Proceed cautiously, friends!

This is one of my favorite Caroline Musselwhite quotes I’ve been repeating for a loooooong time.

Today I got to hangout and present with this AAC rockstar, @carolineramseymusselwhite ... and she said it 😁

What does it mean? For me it means to use the AAC system your student shows up with. It might not be your favorite, or even the one you might have chosen, but it’s something. It’s a place to start.

Use it while you are building a relationship, figuring out how they learn, how they access, what they love. Tweak and improve the system and the implementation plan if you need to...and keep communicating while you do it.

You may need to pursue a new system, but don’t rush to judgement and don’t stop communicating while you figure it out! #augcomm #ashaigers

A dog-eared AAC book is a sign of a well implemented AAC book. A somewhat beat up, slightly dirty AAC device is almost always a well used AAC device. In our world a “pristine and like-new” AAC system is not what we are going for! 😆

Hi, Everyone! We know most of you through one of our services but thought it was time to bring it all together for you!

Chuck and I started Dynamic Therapy 24 years ago! Now we are able to do so much more, thanks to the dedicated team around us!

Dynamic Therapy is our small clinic where we provide speech, language and AAC services both in clinic and through telepractice-“TeleprAACtice Chicks!” 😁

“AACchicks” is our social media handle where we share and make communication and special needs focused resources on Instagram, Facebook, YouTube, Twitter and Pinterest.

“DTA Schools” is our school based program providing AAC supports, equipment and classroom implementation for students, as well as training and materials for educational teams, with a membership website of materials and information! 😁

“AACchick Clips” is a new endeavor creating clipart for education. Stayed tuned on this one!

Chuck and I are so thankful to the team who makes all of this work:
Amalia, Jessica, Danielle, Jenna, Ellen, Lauren, Andrea, Shari, Barbara, Patti, Megan, Alex and Ashley, and YOU!

Thanks for being a part of our life project! ~Vicki 💗

At the start of the pandemic, many of us rushed to purchase subscriptions to educational materials sites to ensure we could continue to provide effective services to our students. SOME sites offered appealing initial membership rates and, while we were stressed and not paying attention, slipped an auto renewal into the agreement. Some even state that they have the right to change their rates, a LOT, at any time. And if you see that charge hit your credit card, you’re done. No recourse, except maybe a discount to keep you on the hook one more year. BE CAREFUL! It’s almost exactly one year since the COVID shutdown began, so a lot of memberships are coming due.
