Please Teach Me to Communicate! Expressive Communication Strategies for Young Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder

This training will challenge participants to consider the difficult or unusual behaviors exhibited by a young child with ASD in relation to an communication difference. The entire range of expressive communication abilities exhibited by children with ASD will be addressed, from children who are pre-verbal to students who are verbal, yet lack the social communication skills to be successful communicators. The verbal behavior of echolalia will also be discussed, in relation to the positive aspects of this unusual expressive communication form. Core communication skills will be reviewed, as well as where to start and where to go with AAC systems for children with ASD who are pre-verbal. Numerous examples of instructional strategies to teach various expressive communication skills to children with ASD will be shared, through a combination of video clips, actual materials, and personal stories.
