When supporting an AAC user who is developing their narrative skills scaffolding is an important tool. The Story Grammar Marker app is an excellent tool that provides a nice scaffold for narrative skills, it’s based on the popular system used in classrooms around the country. If you are not familiar with Story Grammar Marker® please visit MindWing Concepts to learn more about how it works. In this app you act as the “reporter” who is reporting on your own experiences, a book, or a movie. Follow this visual from PrAACticalAAC.org (which uses Pixons®) to help you organise the types of words you would like to target when working on narratives. The lesson plan below is a good starting point but may not utilise all the words the person may require when writing their narratives.
