Session Detail

Make it Take it:  Using Pictures for Functional Communication with Language Impaired Students

- Audience:  Intervention Specialists, SLPs, OTs, Paraprofessionals

Participants will:

  • define components of an effective communication system.
  • practice systematic teaching of picture exchange steps in developing a functional communication system.
  • demonstrate procedures for teaching picture discrimination.
  • develop an appropriate functional picture communication tool for a student/s with significant language impairments.

Important Session Information:

Students with significant language impairments, including learners with autism spectrum disorders, are often limited by their inability to express themselves effectively; therefore, adversely impacting their social interactions, engagement, and overall behavior.

This course will define the components of effective communication and guide participants through a sequence of systematic procedures to promote independent expression of wants and needs, in addition to other vital communication functions that will reduce frustration and increase social behavior.

Participants will engage in hands-on practice of critical components, including teaching initiation skills through concrete picture exchange, discrimination of visual stimuli and generalization across environments and communication partners.

Additionally, participants will be provided with the materials and resources to create their own individualized communication system to use immediately following the training.
