Mandy Wallace and student

Mandy Wallace, Augmentative Communication Specialist, is using a communication app on an iPad called Proloquo 2 Go with a student during Shared Reading.  Shared Reading is a strategy teachers, support staff, and families can use to help children with communication difficulties become engaged, active participants during a reading interaction.  Over the past school year, the Assistive Technology team has provided numerous trainings to Bend La Pine Schools and other districts to help staff feel competent in using this strategy to facilitate communication with students.
