Functional communication skills are essential for all learners and must be promoted within all environments, including the home. This unique continuing education experience will include a review of a recent article related to assisting caregivers to teach functional communication skills. Participants will review the full article and complete a sample Critical Communication Skills Checklist for one learner. A 90-minute meeting session with the authors of the article will allow time to further explore the concepts included in the paper, as well as respond to any participant questions. The experience will conclude with a short test related to the contents of the article and subsequent discussion. Upon completion of all requirements, participants are eligible for 3.0 BACB CEUs.
