The AAC Learning Center Moodle provides free evidence-based content on augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) for pre-service teachers and speech-language pathologists. Students will be able to complete activities on-line, and then download a Certificate of Completion as documentation of their activities. Students also will be able to print and complete a guided notes activity that summarizes the key content of the module.
Below please find an outline of the content for Funding for AAC in Schools. Please click on Funding for AAC in Schools to view the materials at the AAC Learning Center Moodle. You will be asked to register/sign-in at the Moodle site.
