Autism Summer 2017: Building Communication Skills in Individuals Who are Less Verbal

Communication is a critical skill for all of us.  When our students struggle with communication they often also struggle with learning and participation in classrooms.  But how do you decide how to help, what communication systems to choose for students who need them?  In this workshop, participants will be introduced to the critical questions to ask when determining what kinds of visual and augmentative systems to develop to support all levels of communicators. They will interact with various systems, learn the pros and cons of each system, have the opportunity to begin developing a plan for systems for the students they support, and then demonstrate techniques for teaching the use of those systems across home, school, and community environments.   The training will examine where to start when introducing a new expressive and/or expressive communication system to anindividual and how to build on communication skills they may already possess.  Come with questions about individual students and feel free to bring samples of successful systems you have used. 

 Includes lunch both days during the presentation.
