For my iWOW project, I bought and assembled an AAC Core Word of the Week binder to use in the Early Childhood classrooms I work in next year. This will be used mainly for children who use augmentative and alternative communication. Working on one core word each week is a great way to expand functional vocabulary. The words in this book will target 'go', 'in', 'different', and 'help'. I am excited to use this next year!
