Susan Berkowitz - speech-language pathologist | aac consultant | serving san diego & surrounding counties



"I believe that even if a child is unable to speak, that child is still capable of having a voice. And I believe every nonverbal child deserves the opportunity to develop their voice and use it to communicate with others, and every parent deserves the tools to teach them how."

Who am I here for? Busy SLPs who have some or all of a caseload of AAC students.

What is their problem? Too big of a caseload and not enough time to prepare for every student on it, or the expertise in a niche area like AAC.

These SLPs have a variety of students besides the AAC users that they need to prep for every week. Or if the caseload is all AAC users, they’re all at different stages of AAC growth. Too much to do, too little time. And too much frustration at having to miss all their friend and family time making implementation materials.

I have felt your pain. Over the years, through experience, research, and the mentoring of others, I have fine-tuned what I do to provide successful outcomes for non-speaking children; from providing Aided Language Stimulation, increasing communication functions, increasing length of utterances, developing and improving narrative and conversational skills, and developing early literacy skills.

I have a 5 step process that I have used successfully to take students from barely emergent communicators to more competent.

Curriculum Materials:

So buy now! Not sure where to start? Try my AAC Getting Started Kit or my 10 Weeks to 40 Core Words; both for emergent communicators. Or, send me a Q&A and I'll be happy to help.

A limited number of my therapy materials are available here on my website. Browse here.
