AT and AAC Tools

 

We are happy to present brand-new assistive technology and augmentative and alternative communication tools!

Browse through this post to see if one of these solutions will help improve your students' communication and ease of technology use.

 

Tell Me Program 

The Tell Me program is a classroom-wide approach to support children who are nonverbal or minimally verbal, and are beginning users of augmentative and alternative communication (AAC). Using familiar books, it focuses on a small set of high frequency words (core vocabulary) that children use throughout the day, and helps teachers and speech and language pathologists structure lessons to teach and practice those words using research-supported strategies.

 

Laureate Mobile Station 

This all-in-one device converts easily from a standard computer layout to a hand-held tablet. It includes 14 titles that address six key areas: Cause and Effect, Early Vocabulary, Syntax, Auditory Processing, Understanding Others, and Functional Language. Optimized Intervention® technology presents students with the exact lessons they need by continually analyzing their response patterns. Speech therapists, support staff, and special education teachers can easily transport this extensive library of software. Plus, optional Simply Works lets switch users communicate wirelessly with the Laureate Mobile Station.

 

Empower Communication Board 

The Empower Communication Board (ECB) enables individuals with communication challenges to participate in and direct their care throughout a medical encounter. The ECB concepts are field-tested in a hospital setting by authors Jane K. Quarles, MS, CCC-SLP, and Melanie Wood, MS, OTR/L, ATP. It can be used as a single overlay to gain attention or answer yes/no/I don’t know questions, or with a combination of overlays to deliver a more complex message. Attainment is excited to offer staff, families, and friends the opportunity to access an easy-to-use video tutorial via a QR code on the ECB, which provides quick training at bedside as needed.

  • Just wanted to make you aware that the book:
    What Do You Like? By Michael Grejniec is not available. I've been trying to get copies for the Tell Me Program within our district and am finding that the book is no longer available. I've searched online and in several stores. Was there a partnership with this publisher? Can you provide any information about this book?

    • Hi Janet,
      Thank you for your message! You are correct, this book is no longer in print, which is an unfortunate turn of events. We have created our own story that may be used in its place, which includes all of the core vocabulary and follows a similar structure to What Do You Like?. If you are interested, please email me at leah@attainmentcompany.com and I will be happy to share the file with you!
