Implementation Workshop

Communicating Beyond Requesting (Portsmouth, VA) Private Session

Description

Where do you typically start when introducing augmentative and alternative communication (AAC)?  If you are like most people, you probably start with activities that involve an individual requesting a motivating object or action. But what happens next?  What happens when we run out of things to request?  In this session, we will help you develop specific strategies to go beyond requesting - into the world of asking questions, making comments, protesting, expressing opinions, and other important communicative functions.  We will use lecture, discussion, video examples, and small-group activities to explore the power of various communicative functions, vocabulary selection, teaching strategies, and specific ways to facilitate communication beyond requesting.

Learning Outcomes:  Upon successful completion, participants will be able to:  

  • Name two communicative functions beyond requesting and describe their communication benefits
  • Identify two communication tools that support interactions beyond requesting
  • List two partner communication strategies that will facilitate communication beyond requesting

Check-in begins at 8:30 am
