This workshop is a must for
parents, caregivers and professionals working and/or living with people who
have complex communication needs. You will learn how to teach critical
communication skills that lead to greater independence in the home, work,
school and community settings. We review nine specific skills: requesting
reinforcers, requesting help, requesting a break, indicating yes and no,
waiting, following directions, schedule-following and transitioning. Through
lecture, demonstrations, video and participatory activities, you will acquire
specific teaching strategies that are relevant for anyone who has limited
communication skills, regardless of their communicative modality (e.g., Picture
Exchange Communication System [PECS], signing, device use, speech).
Participants will be able to:
Define functional communication
Identify and evaluate nine critical communication skills
Design effective teaching strategies to promote these
skills independent of modality
Incorporate effective visual strategies for all
Incorporate critical communication skills into functional
activities and routines
