A Message from PRC Regional Consultants to Classroom Teachers and Related Service Providers:
At the Prentke Romich Company, we educate, train and implement practical AAC solutions. Like you, we are Special Educators and Speech-Language Pathologists. We understand your training and support needs as you begin learning and implementing a PRC AAC device in your classroom.
You know your students and what they need to excel in a learning environment. Teaching with an AAC device is just the same good teaching you are already doing. We can help you learn to easily include the AAC device in your daily teaching routine.
In order to teach Unity®, PRC’s language system, you must first learn it. If you take the time to explore and practice what your device user needs to learn, you and your student will experience more short- and long-term success. In addition, start small. Begin with one activity, lesson or communication exchange. This will help you give and get feedback from your student and set realistic expectations.
Our website, www.prentrom.com, offers a free software download so you can practice without using an actual device. In addition, we have a wealth of ready-to-use teaching materials, lesson plans, and activity ideas on our AAC Language Lab website. Let us help you succeed and experience the joy of teaching a student with AAC needs.
