Becoming America's Next Top Modeler | Gail Van Tatenhove - 1 views

  •  
    In this blog post by a famous AAC clinician named Gail Van Tatenhove she tells the story of Velma, an employee at an adult facility who witnessed Gail talking with an AAC user by modeling on the device.

    Velma was inspired to become "America's Next Top Modeler" with Gail acting as her coach. In the article, Gail outlines some initial scripts she gave to Velma to use when chatting with the AAC user. These scripts were necessary because Velma couldn't be expected to know where every word was she might ever need to say. The scripts took the pressure off! Velma only needed to find these few words.

    Guess what happened? In time, Velma learned where all of these words were so she didn't need to use the scripts at all.
