Positive AACtion – Information Kit for AAC Teams

Rocky Bay has developed a resource for teams working with children and adults who use augmentative and alternative communication (AAC).

The kit includes evidence-based information sheets and templates to assist parents, teachers and others involved in selecting, trialling and using communication systems. They are designed to be used within a team model as a basis for further discussion and planning. The kit was originally made in 2010 and has been updated with new information by Speech Pathologists at Rocky Bay in 2019. More specifically the package aims to:

• Increase parent and teacher knowledge about AAC systems, including communication devices
• Promote strategies, based on research evidence, that maximise participation and educational outcomes for individuals using a communication device across a range of environments (e.g. school, home & community)
• Emphasise to parents, teachers and therapists the importance of teamwork and how it relates to the effectiveness of communication device.
