Communication is a most basic civil right and the gateway to everything Ÿ?? developing relationships, education, safety, health... However, data indicates that 30% of students with a significant disability still leave school without a symbolic form of communication. This session will highlight promising practices on developing communicative competence for students with complex communication needs. These practices include aided language modeling, core vocabulary, and teaching communication to all students as part of a daily instructional routine. As a result of this session, participants will be able to: 1. Identify promising practices that can be implemented to increase communicative competence and pinpoint strategies that can be used immediately Participants will be introduced to a variety of best practice communication strategies used to engage individuals in communication, through video clip examples and hands on practice. 2. Identify communication skills that can be overtly taught as part of daily routines. People learn communication through modeling and practice. Participants will gain ideas on how to overtly teach, model and provide opportunities to practice such things as asking for assistance, expressing a refusal (no thank you), asking and answering questions, commenting and sharing ideas. 3. Identify strategies that can be implemented to teach others how to become more effective communication partners. Participants will be introduced to a variety of strategies (i.e., topic boards, aided language stimulation, and peer modeling) to engage individuals in communicative exchanges.
