    Description: A social-learning group was used to train caregivers of school-age augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) users. Training was aimed at the caregiver of emergent AAC users and occurred in the home and community settings using a modeling strategy. Instruction was primarily delivered in three 15-minute training sessions using Facebook. In addition to social media instruction, the caregiver-child teams met with other participants to practice and implement newly learned skills during community activities. Meetings were approximately 1-hour in length and included coaching and feedback. A single subject AB design was used to evaluate the effects of community instruction on caregiver AAC modeling. Frequency of caregiver modeling is the dependent variable measured by direct observation. Module development utilized behavior skills training techniques consisting of (a) instruction (b) modeling (c) practice (d) feedback and coaching in the community setting.
