In 2017, the Specialised ATC, SPD launched its first run of AAC for Caregivers – a caregiver training program in Alternative and Augmentative Communication (AAC). This year, we are thrilled to be able to publish the AAC for Caregivers manual online in conjunction with our ongoing AAC for Caregivers program.

AAC for Caregivers was borne out of the strong conviction that AAC has to be implemented at home and in other natural settings for real success. The AAC for Caregivers material has been used with caregivers who support individuals who use AAC in one-on-one and group settings. The group facilitation approach saw caregivers coming together in small groups to learn, discuss and share their experiences of using the AAC strategies with each other.

There are 8 strategies covered in the resource which have been trialed and adapted to the local context.  There are also suggestions for where, when and how to use the strategies.

This resource–AAC for Caregivers Manual–can be downloaded and used as a manual ,or as separate handouts during just-in-time training for caregivers or professionals working with individuals who use AAC. Professionals can try out the strategies with the individual under their care or guide caregivers through the strategies in their intervention sessions.

For more information about our AAC for Caregivers training program, please email  us at atc@spd.org.sg.
