Facilitating the Development of Communication, Language and Social Skills for Your Child

For professionals working with children with special needs.

Description

Communicating with children with speech, language and communicative impairments requires some skills in using the multi-modal approach. This approach incorporates multiple modalities of communication such as speech, gestures, picture boards to facilitate expressive and receptive language skills.

Using a multi-modal communication makes language more concrete and less transient and hence facilitates better cognitive processing of language. Providing a multi-sensory input for language also enables better support for emerging literacy and numeracy skill development.

This workshop will focus on the use of Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) as a mode to facilitate the development of communication, language and social skills for your child.

  • Introduction to AAC systems for communication
