Authentic inclusion in mainstream education poses challenges for every student. This session aims to explore effective strategies for supporting Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) users in both social and academic aspects of the general education classroom. Focusing on peer support and integration of AAC, we will discuss ways to benefit all learners. Additionally, we will delve into the descriptive teaching model, and examine its potential for academic differentiation. Join us for a dynamic session brimming with practical ideas, facilitating meaningful curriculum interactions and fostering a rich social environment for all students.
