Session Detail

Speech-Language Pathology
VIRTUAL FORMAT: Beyond Requesting: Fostering Communicative Functions in Students with Autism

ESC-20 provides training, technical support, resources and information about speech therapy for students who have communication disorders.

Use of Quality Data to Drive Instruction

Important Session Information:

Children with autism often develop the ability to request preferred items and actions verbally or non-verbally, but learning other reasons to communicate (e.g., greeting, calling, commenting, etc.) supports enriched interactions for social and academic purposes.  This workshop focuses on how speech-language pathologists and teachers can partner to enhance a variety of communicative functions in children with autism who operate in request-only mode.  

Session Learning Objectives:  The participants will

1. identify developmentally-appropriate communicative functions for a student with autism, 

2. create an IEP objective targeting a communicative function other than requesting, 

3. pinpoint multiple intervention contexts for modeling target communicative functions, and

4. describe how interactions highlighting a variety of communicative functions can be adapted for a child using AAC.
