We’ve been sharing our favorite ways to use tools in learning with the Learning with Manipulatives series. This week, we used two of my top Occupational Therapy recommendations in a combined fine motor activity…to make stamped letters for learning!

These topics are different for everyone, and one of the most important parts of preparing a personalized vocabulary is making sure that the words to talk about favorite topics are available and easily accessible from peripheral folders.
A balanced SAAC consists of essential words along with easy access to peripheral words and a keyboard, making it easy for AAC learners to communicate efficiently and independently.
