Many students with autism and other developmental delays experience challenges understanding spoken language and effectively communicating their wants and needs. These challenges can impact functional living skills and educational experience by limiting the ability to learn new skills, participating in groups, and completing daily routines independently. When students have difficulty understanding language and expressing themselves, they may demonstrate unexpected behaviors to communicate their frustration and their needs. Caregivers and teaching staff can learn strategies that enable students to use supports to understand language, as well as use skills to communicate in daily routines. Once students learn the power of understanding language and communication, they will be more likely to use these skills independently.
In this recorded edWebinar, explore the underlying causes of communication differences in students with autism and other developmental delays. Considering the impact language deficits have on student behaviors, the presenters share and delve into a variety of free resources that can be used in the home or school setting to increase desired behaviors. Video examples and practical tips will be shared so that participants leave with various ideas to teach students the power of language in daily routines.
This recorded edWebinar will be of interest to PreK-12 teachers, school leaders, district leaders, and caregivers of students with autism.
