“Can We Talk??? How to Get Conversations Started with Pre-linguistic Learners."
Nancy Steele, M.Ed. former teacher and technical assistance specialist at the National Center on Deafblindness, will provide a workshop on communication instruction for individuals with severe and multiple disabilities. The workshop includes both instruction and practical exercises. These are designed to support participants in expanding their understanding of how they might encourage children with significant disabilities to demonstrate and further develop their ability and desire to communicate.
This training will be open to family members, teachers, speech language pathologist, therapists, early interventionists, paraprofessionals, and others working with children with significant disabilities. There is no charge for this training and lunch will be provided onsite. Each participant will receive a "Communication Toolkit" to take home.
