PRC is pleased to introduce the fifth of a series of apps featuring the six Stages of Language Development featured in our AAC Language Lab (www.AACLanguageLab.com). This App focuses on Stage Four and is a great tool for use with augmentative communicators.
This app is designed for individuals who are beginning to use adjectives in simple sentences to describe things. During Stage four, the form of sentences increases to include yes/no questions, and “Wh” questions. The person learns to say common past tense verbs that do not end in “ed”, such as “saw”, “said”, “told”, and “went.” The concept of actions that happened in the past is developing. Later on, the person will become aware of the grammar rule that most past tense verbs end in -ed, and will attempt to make some irregular past tense verbs end in “ed”, such as “comed” and “goed”. During stage four the person begins to use possessive endings. Linking verbs that are not in contractions also appear in stage four.
