AAC teaching curriculum - Pixon modules

There is a need within the field of AAC for a curriculum to guide the systematic development of language for persons using AAC.  The Pixon Project was conducted over a two year period, by Gail VanTatenhove, M.S., CCC-SLP, in order to provide just such a curriculum.
The package (available from the Prentke Romich store, $149.95) provides the following materials:  a curriculum, manual communication boards, a system of pictures, and educational support materials. 
The Pixon Project Kit is a valuable resource for teaching foundational communication using low or high tech AAC. Review this curriculum by downloading this PDF.
