Make plans to join us for summer learning with the four-week AAC for Families Summer Series from Minspeak Academy (formerly Semantic Compaction Systems) at PRC-Saltillo. Summer is often a more laid-back season without the school routine. Take advantage of the time to focus on using your AAC device with home routines and fun summer activities. You won’t regret this opportunity to learn and implement valuable strategies at home. You’ll see communication grow for your child as well as your relationship with them.

Count on Fun!

This webinar series is offered at the beginner level so that everyone can feel comfortable attending. You can count on fun with these courses because your AAC and language development instructors believe learning happens best with engaging play. These 90-minute sessions are bursting with engaging suggestions, demonstrations, and resources. One of the four events will be an interactive hands-on event where family members can build confidence in using the AAC device. View the courses on AAC Learning Journey.

“Language immersion through device and low-tech modeling and use cannot be understated,” said Debbie Witkowski, MA, CCC-SLP, Training and Implementation Specialist at Minspeak Academy. “The summer series will give you creative ways to bring AAC use into your home and relationship with your child. Hope to see you there!”

Summer sessions are taught with your favorite Minspeak vocabularies including Unity®, LAMP Words for Life®, and Unidad®. However, the principles and activities can be applied to whatever AAC language system your child is using.
