Augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) devices are often the primary means of communication for nonverbal students and have been shown to improve the communication, language, and literacy skills of children with such deficits.Teacher’s attitudes toward the use and effectiveness of AAC has been found to be negative. Does instructional method affect the speed at which novel users demonstrate competency in Proloquo2Go? Does the type of training influence the attitude of novel users toward AAC?
