TASH is celebrating 40 years of progressive leadership because it has “a vision of a world in which people with disabilities are included and fully participating members of their communities…and will be realized when…All individuals have a way to communicate and their communities are flexible in communicating in alternate ways that support full participation”. In support of TASH’s vision, this poster session will introduce aided language modeling and topic boards as a way to increase the sophistication of a person’s communication. These strategies promote and support one’s full participation in conversations and the sharing of ideas. The concept of aided language modeling will be introduced through demonstration and examples. The most salient features of a topic board needed to broaden a student’s opportunities to share ideas, comment and participate in discussions will displayed.
