AAC...the more you know...
One of the biggest barriers often talked about from individuals implementing AAC is that they are unsure where to start. Tobii Dynavox's Pathways for Core First is a free companion app that is ideal for any communication partner seeking expert guidance and best practices to get started using symbol-based AAC. The company made this software to support folks using Snap + Core First, but the reality is, there are some really tremendous tools here that can support ALL AAC users who are using a Core approach. Pathways provides videos, lesson plans, interactive goals and a suite of printable materials to help you each step of the way. Download the free app or use Pathways Online (available in English, German, Spanish, or Dutch) to help you get started or take you to the next level.
