Assessment and Beginning Communication for Children with Severe Disabilities

*Was known as Roadmaps to Language Development for Children with Obstacles in the Road: Birth to 5* This presentation will assist professionals who work with young children who have severe disabilities to approach assessments and communication skills from a functional skills approach. Various communication assessment tools for this population will be shared so that participants will come away with resources they can use to properly assess, plan, and deliver a program for their students. This includes tactile communication options and strategies. Understanding the building blocks of communication, the selection of appropriate communication systems and programming for individual success will be key points. Video clips showing how communication strategies are implemented will be shown. A list of assessment instruments will be provided.
