I am a speech language pathologist (SLP) in the Edmonds School District. I work at Maplewood Parent Coop.

Last week I received a wonderful surprise at work. I had asked for our district CORE boards to be translated into additional languages, and they were finished! We now have the 1-page CORE board for home translated into Korean, Vietnamese, Amharic, Arabic, Spanish, and Russian!

An SLP friend shared this resource with me, and I thought it was so cool that I needed to share with you! It uses Thinglink to show ideas for AAC modeling at home: during morning routine, meals, bath time, bed time, and all over the house! To see the suggestions, you click on the area of the house you want to view. It is a really neat way to organize a lot of tips into a simple, easy to navigate graphic. Enjoy!
