Tips to Becoming A Successful Communicator



Feb 26th 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Use of Augmentative Communication in the Home: Tips to being a successful communicator
This 2-hour course is geared for parents, families, caregivers, in-home SLPs, and OTs to learn some basic techniques in integrating your child's communication system (from low tech to high tech SGDs) into your daily life WITHOUT creating added stress.

Learn to:

  • Recognize communication vs "testing"
  • Use low-tech - high tech SGDs in a variety of settings in the home and community
  • Identify at least 3 daily activities that you ALREADY do that a communication system can be integrated into

This will NOT be a training on specific devices or systems, rather ways to integrate any system a child may have into the home and community.
