Multi-Modal Communication and Learning Strategies for Children with Significant Challenges

VCF Funding is available for employees of NCSS Member Agencies and MSF-funded Agencies

Description

Children who face significant physical and multiple challenges, as well as those children on the more severe end of the autism spectrum, often struggle to access communication, interaction and learning.  Some of these children may have very little control of moving their bodies. Others have difficulty taking in and processing sensory information from their environment. Many find communication and interaction skills challenging.

This two-day presentation will address questions such as: What are we learning from brain research that can help us understand how children learn? How do we motivate children and provide opportunities for active learning? What strategies help give these children a sense of control and facilitate interaction and communication? How does the child on the severe end of the autism spectrum perceive the world and how does this impact learning and communication? How does Cortical Visual Impairment impact learning?

This workshop will introduce the concept of providing a receptive aided language learning environment, and demonstrate how learning alternative and augmentative forms of communication can and should parallel the developmental process that typical children go through in learning speech.  We will also take a brief look at Pragmatic Organization Dynamic Display (PODD)* Communication books developed by Gayle Porter, in Melbourne, Australia.
