when AAC was supported only 2 times a week, for 30 mins (typical SLP sessions) it was estimated that it will take the AAC user 84 years to have the same language exposure experience of a 9 year old.

It's critical that adults use the student's AAC system (books, displays, devices, signs/gestures, etc) with the student throughout the day. Communicate to the student using the system with the expectation that they will eventually use it to communicate with you.
