What is Partner Augmented Input and are you already practicing it in your classroom? In this class we will talk about Partner Augmented Input and strategies associated with it. Partner Augmented Input or Aided Language Input is a strategy where the teacher becomes a fully engaged and active listener during the augmented communication interaction. Communication partners become more engaged by modeling symbol use and identifying location and symbols on augmented language systems. Pairing symbols with verbal language enables the communication partner to model appropriate linguistic behavior in a variety of settings while giving the student a model they can imitate. Let's learn how we can improve linguistic interactions with our non-verbal students while engaging PAI strategies in our classrooms. This class will be taught using Google classroom and is appropriate for all special education educators and related staff.
