AAC in Daily Routines
The most natural way to make AAC meaningful is to include it during daily routines. When parts of your day are familiar and expected, these may be times to start including AAC opportunities. Adults sometimes fall into a habit of asking a lot of questions to early communicators. Try to shift your words to comments, without expecting an answer. For example, “I LIKE that.” or “Let’s OPEN the fridge and LOOK!”
You may start with one comfortable routine, like eating breakfast or brushing your teeth. Start with a routine that is familiar and not a challenging time of day.
