  • Gail M. Van Tatenhove
Summary

The Pixon Project was developed by an international team of speech & language pathologists and teachers to advocate for and develop a curriculum for the systematic development of language with children using AAC strategies.

This presentation will review the activities of the Pixon Project team and describe materials developed as part of this project. These materials, now available as the Pixon Project Kit, include a language development curriculum with visual support materials, manual communication boards, and a picture set that supports transition to voice output technology. This session will also discuss the use of interactive whiteboards and the Talk To Me100™ as two strategies used to provide simple voice output to support use and learning of the manual communication boards.
