The Wiz by Ablenet is a searchable database of great ideas for using simple AAC devices, environmental controls, and switches. Narrow the search by age, subject matter or theme, skill, and/or assistive technology tool. Although the assistive technology listed as 'materials needed' for these lessons are all Ablenet branded, similar AAC and AT devices can, of course, also be used. MPS teachers who need access to equipment for these lessons can contact the AT department.
The web site for Dade County Prekindergarten programs offers a great selection of materials made using BoardMaker software. Selections include interactive storybooks, activity-specific boards, behavioral and social displays, and class routine supports. Once downloaded, they can be modified using BoardMaker v.5 or higher.
