  • AAC for Preschoolers

    Today I would like to continue my post discussion from last week. So far, only one SLP has responded to my inquiry about using an iPad with children ages 3-5 years old. Now, I do realize that we are less than a week away from both Christmas and Hanukkah, so maybe therapists are much busier than usual! However, I am also wondering if ...
