Providing Access to Common Core Language Arts Standards to Students who use Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC)

The purpose of this document is to highlight the significance of communication in accessing the core curriculum language arts standards, and to provide examples of the manner in which students with complex communication needs (CCN) can access robust, rigorous, standards-based instruction when provided with augmentative and alternative communication (AAC).
