Thursday, November 1, 2018

Training Type: Implementation Workshop


In this session, we will review a core word strategy approach supporting both communication and literacy development for individuals with complex communication needs. Based on best practices, participants will review research and strategies to support core vocabulary for communication as well as core word lesson plans to support literacy development. Additionally, we will focus on the emergent communicator and how AAC (augmentative and alternative communication) supports and strategies help realize their communication potential. We will demonstrate how the Snap + Core First communication software can target core vocabulary in communication activities across learning environments for all communication ability levels.

Learning Outcomes:  Upon successful completion of this course, participants will be able to:
  • Review three language characteristics of a core word strategy
  • Describe three targeted activities that support communication with core vocabulary across learning environments.
  • Describe three intervention techniques to increase intentional communication with the emergent communicator
  • Identify two high-tech AAC solutions can be implemented with the emergent communicator population.
