AAC USER LECTURE SERIES
AAC in the inclusive classroom

Max, Pete and Matt are an awesome AAC team in a mainstream classroom and, when paired with a great group of classmates, it’s a recipe for success. 

​​​​Max is a 12 year old boy who wants to learn like everyone else. Max has both a PODD communication book and eye gaze device to support his communication and learning requirements. His SSO, Pete and teacher, Matt, are there to help, but Max is encouraged to take an active role in his own learning.

Max is part of a full class of students and the learning requirements for all need to be met. Matt sets and undertakes curriculum tasks and Pete supports Max’s learning within these tasks, but only when required. Pete’s ideal goal is to make himself redundant by supporting Max to be as independent as possible within his school environment.

Together, they all address the benefits and challenges that inclusive education presents to them, but with the right attitude, things can happen and they usually do.

Come along to hear how they approach AAC  the inclusive classroom.
